Adios Google Wave

by on August 4, 2010

Did you use Google Wave?  Neither did I.  Apparently neither did most people.

Wave has not seen the user adoption we would have liked. We don’t plan to continue developing Wave as a standalone product, but we will maintain the site at least through the end of the year and extend the technology for use in other Google projects. The central parts of the code, as well as the protocols that have driven many of Wave’s innovations, like drag-and-drop and character-by-character live typing, are already available as open source, so customers and partners can continue the innovation we began. In addition, we will work on tools so that users can easily “liberate” their content from Wave.

Wave has taught us a lot, and we are proud of the team for the ways in which they have pushed the boundaries of computer science. We are excited about what they will develop next as we continue to create innovations with the potential to advance technology and the wider web. – Via The Official Google Blog

  1. I signed up but since no one else used it, was useless…they really need much better integration with Google Docs and Google Apps.

    Wave was one of Google’s “invite only” ideas that lost its hype when no one could get into it…..
