A couple of years ago, Google launched a Chrome extension dubbed “Save to Google” which sort of acted the same way as Pinterest, where users could “save” items they liked on the web to a centralized location for viewing later on. However fast forward a couple of years later, it seems that Google is done with it.

In a report from 9to5Google, it appears that Google will be killing off the extension. According to a yellow warning message on the extension, Google has announced that the extension will be discontinued starting on the 15th of August, 2018. For now it appears that all the items that you might have saved over the years will not be affected. You will still be able to view them via the Saved website.

Basically what this means is that Google will no longer be supporting the extension, but saved items will continue to be kept although it is unclear if this is permanent or if eventually this website will be sunset as well. It is unclear why Google has decided to kill off the extension, but if this is something that you’ve grown accustomed to, perhaps it might be time to start looking into using Pinterest or some other similar service.
