Another Google app gets buried in early August

Another Google app gets buried in early August
Google Trips get the ax effective August 5, the search giant recently confirmed. The decision isn't surprising at all since Google has recently redesigned the Trips app on the web that's meant to replace the Android app.

The app is still available for download via Google Play Store, and there's no mention of Trips being killed. However, the Google Trips support page has been updated to reflect the changes, XDA Developer reports.

Google does not seem to plan to replace Trips with another mobile app. Instead, users should start seeing the information that would normally be provided by Trips in other Google services, including Search and Maps.

Still, if you can't live without Google Trips, you can always use the web app after August 5, especially now that Google has given it a new look and feel.
