Instead, Google Currents users will switch to using the Google Spaces service which is present in 2021. Space itself is a mobile application that will support group discussions with content sharing features without having to leave the application.
“Since launching Spaces, many customers have commented that they enjoy product integration across Google Workspace, including Gmail, Calendar, Drive and Meet, as well as a seamless collaboration experience,” Google said in a post on the company blog.
“With Spaces available, starting in 2023, we plan to discontinue Google Currents and will bring the remaining content and community into the new Spaces experience,” Google continued, as quoted by XDA Developers.
Before Currents closes, Google will add some new features to Spaces. However, the details have not been disclosed by the company. What is clear, the new feature will support a larger community, available tools for content moderation, and more.
“We’ll be bringing new capabilities to Spaces to help you communicate and collaborate more effectively. This includes support for larger communities and leadership communications, investments in advanced search, tools for content moderation and more,” wrote Google.
Users can still use the Google Currents service for the next few months. During this period, Google also encouraged users to migrate to Spaces.
Later, Google will gradually stop the Currents feature, including the post analysis feature, mobile notifications, influencer profiles and others. Because, this feature is considered to have a low level of use.
