Google drops Wave because of lack of users


While I did get a beta invite to this project from Google, I thought it may take off more than it did. However using it for a while and with lack of other friends wanting to use it, it started to become a bit of a white elephant, so I am not surprised today to see that Google are to drop this project.

“Google is waving goodbye to Wave, a product which the company said would transform the way people communicate online. It blamed poor take-up by users of the service, which was launched to great fanfare just one year ago.

At the time Google described the tool as "how e-mail would look if it were invented today".

It combined e-mail, instant messaging and features that allowed people to collaborate on documents in real-time. Users could see edits and comments written by other "Wavers" as they were typed.”
