Back in April 2019, Google shuts down its Google+ social network platform. However, a G Suite version for enterprise communication still exists which is on the verge of closing down forever as Google has announced to launch Currents on July 6.
For those who don’t know, Google Currents is a rebranded version of Google+ for the enterprise. Today, Google pushed an email to G Suite administrators announcing that Currents will become generally available on Monday, July 6. Existing Google+ users will be transitioned over to the “updated look and feel” and benefit from “additional features,” including content moderation and administrative privileges.
Google Currents was in beta for the past few months which is touted as a place to “Engage employees. The user interface and experience is mostly unchanged with a home stream ordered by relevance. Text, links, images, and other content from Drive can be shared, along with polls.
With the launch of Currents next month, all Google+ users and content will be automatically transitioned to Currents with full availability taking five days. Existing plus.google.com links will continue to work and redirect to currents.google.com URLs. In addition to that, an update on Google+ on Android will replace the existing branding with Currents branding.
