Windows 7: Sunset of consumer Google+ on April 2

Sunset of consumer Google+ on April 2

We announced this past fall that we’re sunsetting consumer Google+ in April 2019, and today have more details to share. While this process of deleting consumer content will take a few months and some content may remain visible during this time, you should take action before April to ensure you don’t lose any content you want to save.

Many different people use Google+, from everyday consumer users to developers to teams in business settings. Because of this, we want to provide the details you need to navigate this change. Below is more information and recommended actions.

For Google+ consumer users

Starting April 2, 2019, we will shut down your Google+ account and any pages you created, and we'll begin deleting content from consumer Google+ accounts. Photos and videos from Google+ in your Album Archive and your Google+ pages will also be deleted. If you have Google+ content that you would like to save, you must do so before April 2nd.

To get started, please reference these Google+ account download instructions, which explain how to download and save your content. Check out this article on our Help Center or this list of frequently asked questions if you’re looking for more information.

For G Suite users and admins

While we bring consumer Google+ to a close, we are continuing our investment in Google+ for the enterprise. You can read more details in this blog post. This means that for those of you who use Google+ as part of G Suite, your accounts will remain active. G Suite users include businesses who pay for its services and educational institutions and other organizations that use G Suite at no cost.

If you’re not sure if your organization uses G Suite, you can check here. If you’re a G Suite admin, you can get more details about the specific impacts of the consumer Google+ shutdown on the G Suite experience in our Help Center.

For developers who use Google+ APIs

Lastly, we are shutting down all Google+ APIs, which also includes Google+ Sign-in and requests for Google+ OAuth scopes. We have already begun the wind down process and developers may notice intermittent API failures leading up to March 7, 2019, when APIs will be fully shutdown. Read more about the Google+ API shutdown here. For developers wanting to migrate from Google+ Sign-in to Google Sign-in, see here.

We’d like to take this opportunity to thank all of our Google+ users who’ve built their communities with us over the years. We appreciate what you’ve created and your contributions. Look out for more enterprise-specific Google+ details later this year.
