Bangalore: It’s July, and one of the heavily used Google product, Google Reader, has been laid to rest on 1st of this month. A small sect of the people did try to save this RSS reader, raised even twitter campaigns; but the service however couldn’t be saved.

Google Reader is the recent one to get axe, but there are many other Google products which the search giant has killed or about to kill. Some of these products were admired by the users, some received laughs, and some made the users question Google, “why did you bring this product at all.” Here is the list of 10 Google products as compiled by Android Authority.

#10 Google Reader          

The search engine giant launched Google Reader in 2005 in an effort to make it easier for people to discover and keep tabs on their favorite websites. It is a content application used as a platform for serving news and information to people, which is highly popular even now.

The Reader did garner a small but loyal fan base over the time. But, Google wasn’t happy with that. The company stripped the social properties of the product in 2011, and then finally axed it on 1st July.
