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.

The thing is Google's trip app for Android and iOS is going away. However Google's travel website is going to be using a PWA (progressive web app), which in reality is an actual app. PWA's can also be installed on Android and iOS, and they look and act just like a real app. Not to mention Google is updating their Search and Google Maps will both be getting more trips and travel integration. So to sum it up trips is not going away, but it is evolving.

Google has some good ideas, but no organization.

Take a look at Google's travel website. Also take a look at what PWA's really are.
