Google News: New Delhi: American search engine company Google has announced that it will shut down websites created from Google Business Profile in March this year. “Websites created with Google Business Profiles will be discontinued in March 2024 and customers visiting your site will be redirected to your Business Profile,” Google wrote on its support page.
It says, “Your customers will only be redirected to your business profile until June 10, 2024. After that date, customers will receive a “Page Not Found” error when attempting to visit your website.”
Websites created with Google Business Profiles are basic websites powered by information from your business profile. For those who prefer to have a website for their business, the company advised them to create a new website using other tools and update their business profile with the new website address.
Domains that end with business.site and negotiations.site will be removed from the website field on your business profile. Meanwhile, Google is planning to turn off the “Important” tab in the Files by Google app next month, and anything saved inside at that time will be permanently deleted.
The feature was introduced last year and was available exclusively to those in India who have important documents like government IDs.
The feature will be removed on February 15, according to 9to5Google, which first spotted the warning related to the Google Files tab in the APK teardown.
The notice reads, “The Important tab on files will no longer be available from February 15, 2024.”
