Google Shutting Down Google+ Soon

Google once again announced their decision to shut down one of their products Google+ for consumers in April 2019 due to low usage and several challenges involved in maintaining a successful product like Google+ that meets consumers’ expectations. They wish to plead for the inconvenience this decision might cause to the few making use of this product and also want to thank individuals for being part of Google+ and provide next steps, including how to download your photos and other content.

They wish to remind customers that “On April 2nd 2019, your Google+ account and any Google+ pages you created will be shut down and we will begin deleting content from consumer Google+ accounts”.

Photos and videos from Google+ in your Album Archive and your Google+ pages will also be deleted. You can go ahead and download, save your content, and please just make sure to do so before April. Note that photos and videos backed up in Google Photos will not be deleted.


The process of deleting content from consumer Google+ accounts, Google+ Pages, and Album Archive will take a few months, and content may remain through this time. For example, users may still see parts of their Google+ account via activity log and some consumer Google+ content may remain visible to G Suite users until consumer Google+ is deleted.

As early as February 4th, you will no longer be able to create new Google+ profiles, pages, communities or events.
