Google is on its way to pull back another app from its collection. This time, the company has shut down the Trip Planner app on August 5th to drive users to search for their travel trips on Google Maps and on Google Search. All of the features of that trip planner app has been shifted to Google Maps and Search to give a pleasing user experience.
Users can still find their personal Trips information such as notes and saved places, the company wrote in a post on its Support Page on Monday after Trips was shut down. You just have to sign in to your Google account to sync all the on Search and Maps that you saved in the Trip Planner app.
“Support for the Google Trips app will end on August 5, 2019. At this time, you’ll no longer be able to use the app,” Google wrote. “Until then, you’ll still be able to access and email all of your trip reservations and notes as normal.”
Along with this, you will soon have the option of adding or editing notes through the search site’s travel portal. All the bookings that you made using the Maps and Search will also be saved offline on your device.
The app was first launched in September 2016. At the time, Google had said, “We wanted to reduce the hassle and help travelers enjoy their hard-earned vacations.” And now, after 3 years of remaining in service, the Google Trip Planner is taken down from Google’s apps collection.
This is not the first time that Google is shutting down its own apps. Earlier in April, Google put an end to its Internet-based social network Google+ and its Inbox by Gmail app as well. The tech giant is taking all of these steps just to simplify the user experience on Google.
