Google regularly launches new services - and just as often closes them. More recently, the search giant "killed" the mail client Inbox, the social network Google+, the Google Allo messenger and the link shortening service goo.gl. Now the company has announced the elimination of another product.
At the end of June this year, VR Jump platform will stop its work. It was introduced in 2015 and allowed users to create and share content for virtual reality. Google even enlisted the support of GoPro and the Chinese company Yi, which produced 360-degree cameras worth $ 15,000 and $ 17,000, respectively. The reason for the closure of the service in the company called the emergence of more advanced and popular solutions for creating VR-content.
From June 26, Jump will disable the ability to download and edit new videos. Until June 27, users will be able to download a copy of their data, and on June 28, Google will begin to erase everything from the cloud and delete accounts.
