- Hire is the next tool to be shut down by the Google.
- Google did not give any specific reason so far.
- Google says it will stop charging users for the service after their next bill.
Google Hire will be shut down by Google, says Google. The G Suite tool built for recruiters at small and midsized companies, on September 1st, 2020, despite launching only two years ago. Although, Google did not give a specific reason as to why it is “focusing our resources on other products in the Google Cloud portfolio.”
According to the reports, Google Hire is the latest of several Google products that have shut down recently, joining social network Google+, chat app Allo, and email app Inbox in the Google graveyard. And it is good that Google is trying to strop its product offerings, but it’s getting hard to trust that new Google services will stick around for more than a couple of years.
Google also launched Google for Jobs when it launched Hire, which filters third-party job listings based on search criteria you set, signaling big ambitions to make tools that would help users find jobs, in 2017. And after two years, those ambitions may be stalled as Google for Jobs faces antitrust complaints in the EU and Hire is shutting down.
According to Google , they will no longer be adding new features to Hire, but existing users can keep using the tool until their contract runs out or on September 1st, 2020, whichever comes first. In a very good way, Google says it will stop charging users for the service after their next bill.
