just got this mail saying , Google+ will shut down for consumers in April 2019 due to low usage and challenges involved in maintaining a successful product that meets consumers' expectations.

Seems Google has finally called in Quit after trying to keep it afloat for a while.

i barely use Google + for social engagement.So , don't have much to do with it. But if you are a active user then i guess it's time to backup your data.

Also , for Developers Google+ API is also getting Shutdown so , if you are using any api service like Google+ Sign-in , it's time to find alternate soluction.


I like to ask , have anyone here uses Google + or Google+ API ? If yes then what are you use it for ? and now it's going away , which solution you will turn to ?
