Killed by Google

A tribute and log of beloved products and services killed by Google.

MIT license


To add a product, gather the following information:

  • Name of Product (name)
  • Launch Date (dateOpen)
  • Discontinued Date (dateClose)
  • Description (description)
  • Link (link) - Relevant link to the source.
  • Type (type) - one of App, Service or Hardware

If you are not familiar with or do not want to use git, submit a new issue requesting the change. If you are already familiar with git, follow these steps:

  1. If you haven't already, start by forking this repository.
  2. Create a new branch in your fork. Name it using the product you want to add
  3. Switch to that branch (should happen automatically if you've just created it) and open the graveyard.json file
  4. Run yarn && yarn kill to start the product addition CLI. This will prompt you for the information and validate you entry as you go. It will write the product information into the graveyard.json file for you.
  5. After the CLI, run yarn test to ensure that the graveyard.json is formatted properly and all values are valid.
  6. Commit your work in git and create a Pull Request (PR) using the newly created branch.

For code contributions outside of graveyard.json, check out the Contributing Guide.

Editorial Guidelines


The description should be a single sentence describing the product. It should begin with the products name. For example, "Google Reader was an RSS/Atom feed aggregator." It will be attached to a generated sentence like "Killed about 5 years ago, Google Reader was an RSS/Atom feed aggregator."

Please be respectful, only use past tense.


Link should be a resource that mentions the discontinuation date and talks about the product. Links to Wikipedia or a news organization should be prioritized. Please do not use Google Support articles, linking to the product's URL, the product's marketing URL, or other Google-provided links. Google removes these links quickly after a service is ended.


The type should be either app, service, or hardware as a string.
