Google Shortener, URL shortening service from Google, will be discontinued in March 2019. According to the company’s software engineer, Michael Hermanto, the end of the bracket to the goo.gl will start within a few weeks. Anonymous users or who have never created a link reduced will lose access to the resource already from the next day 13 April. Those who have used the service logged into their Google Accounts may continue to shorten and monitor the performance of the URLs until 30 March 2019.
Since then, the company’s attention will be directed to the Firebase Dynamic Links, smart URLS that facilitate the transition of users of a site for your app. Hermanto informs that, however, the addresses of web reduced by the platform will continue to redirect to the destination page and will not be migrated to the Firebase. Users who have an interest in making the migration will gain tools to perform the action.
