Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL)’s Google+ service couldn’t garner the fame and users since its first day. Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL) has tried almost everything with it to imbibe the users but so far, nothing is working. Now, the search engine giant is reported to be breaking Google+ service into parts. This would mean that end of Google+. Perhaps Google is planning to break the Google+ service in different parts like Stream service, photo service, video service and Hangouts. In an article on Neo Win, it was reported that Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL) is planning to shut down Google+ as a service and launch separate services instead. The source quoted an interview of Sundar Pichai, Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL)’s new product chief, in which he confirmed that Google has planned to break Google+ in parts.
Pichai does not agree with the notion that Google+ was a failure. He says that Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL) had two intentions when it was launching this social media service. The first one was to have a constant product stream. The second one was to make sure that its users could enjoy the single identity login across all the Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL) services. Pichai thinks that Google succeeded in its second goal. While none of these arguments make sense, it is now confirmed that Google+ will be no more a project which Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL) will invest in.
The source said that Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL) will separate Photos and Hangouts from its main Google+ product. There is still hope from Hangouts, as it was the only service which got fame and huge user base around the world.
