15 Amazing Google Projects That Failed!

#10 Google Wave

Wave was described by Google as “an equal parts conversation and document, where people can communicate and work together with richly formatted text, photos, videos, maps, and more”. It received a lot of positive appreciation on its launch as was touted as the next big thing in social networking sphere. Unfortunately, its sophisticated functionality catered well only to the corporate masses and bored the everyday users and led them to dislike it. Thus the announcement to discontinue came on August 04, 2010 and the service was available until Google Docs was capable of accessing saved waves.

#9 Google Reader

Google Reader, an RSS/Atom feed aggregator was developed by Chris Wetherell, a Google engineer and was launched through Google Labs. It was launched in 2005 in an effort to make it easy for people to discover and keep tabs on their favorite websites. Initially this project had a loyal number of users but slowly the usage declined and thus was inevitably closed in July 2013.
