In 2018, the tech giant Google decided to shut down the consumer version of Google Plus due to low usage and challenges associated with maintaining a successful Google+ service that meets consumers’ expectations. Now, Google has officially announced that it will close its Google+ service for consumers on 2nd April 2019. According to Google,” On April 2nd, 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 download and save your content, just make sure to do so before April. Note that photos and videos backed up in Google Photos will not be deleted”.
