Google Labs Discontinued

Google has announced that Google Labs is to be discontinued.

While we’ve learned a huge amount by launching very early prototypes in Labs, we believe that greater focus is crucial if we’re to make the most of the extraordinary opportunities ahead.


The closure of Google Labs is the end of the era, but it doesn’t spell the end of 20% time.

  1. I can't believe Google is shutting down Labs. I was using one of the apps in Labs, Google Fast Flip, on a daily basis. So it's sad to see this one go. My organization teaches speed reading and we used to recommend Google Fast Flip a lot as a great way to read online content more quickly. Now that it's gone, we are planning to create a similar, but better version of Fast Flip. Updates on the project for those interested will be posted here: http://www.irisreading.com/fastflip
