Google Snapshot is going away

Goodbye, Google Snapshot. But Why is it Leaving?

78 / 100

Google Snapshot is going away. A lot of people don’t even know about this, sadly. The few that know about this feature also barely use it; the same applies to me, I barely use the feature. But, it was actually a useful feature – those one or two times I get to use the feature to check out what’s up for the day, or my to-dos.

Owing to the fact that many people didn’t even pay attention to the feature, it’s actually no big surprise that Google is closing it down. Did you actually notice/use the feature all the while it’s been stuck at the top-right corner of the Google Discover feed?

Google Snapshot Has Reached The End Of The Journey

If you checked the Snapshot feature on Google Discover, you’d find a notice at the top indicating that Snapshot is about to go down. We’ve seen a lot of Google products being discontinued in the past – for not meeting up with the expectations.

Among all discontinued Google products, the ones I miss the most are Feedburner and Google Plus. However, according to Google, as Snapshot is going away, some of its features would be integrated with other Google products.

For example, if you want to access your calendar events, you can ask Google Assistant to do that for you by saying, “Hey Google, what’s on my calendar for today?” You can also ask the assistant to show you the latest sports updates or flight booking details.

The full alternatives to accessing Snapshot features are provided in a link shared by Google [view here]. However, Snapshot is still active – Google just sent out an early notice, so that when you open the Discover app and do not see the “Snapshot” feature again, it won’t come as a surprise to you.
