For the past year or so, Google has been slowly shutting down a number of its previous services and side businesses. The last such "spring cleaning" announcement was made in early August
. Today, Google revealed that it has closed, or soon will, quite a few of its services.
A new post on Google's blog
has the details on the changes. One of the biggest ones concerns the amount of cloud storage service that users of its Google Drive and Picasa will have access to in the future. The post states, " ... users will have five GB of free storage across both services. If you’re paying for storage, your free storage will now be counted towards your total. So if you buy a 100GB plan, it will give you 100GB of total
storage instead of adding adding to what you already had."
