Come 2023, tech giant Google will be shutting down Currents, formerly known as Google+ for G Suite. Developed for internal enterprise communication, Google Currents is one of the many products that constitute the Google Workspace line of products.

“With Spaces now available, starting in 2023, we are planning to wind down Google Currents and bring remaining content and communities over to the new Spaces experience,” the company said in a blogpost. “Before we do this, we will deliver new capabilities in Spaces to help you communicate and collaborate more effectively,” it added.

The company has also said that it is investing in search and discoverability, platform capabilities for app development, and enterprise-grade security and compliance, including data protection, data loss prevention (DLP), and Vault support. The company will share a timeline for opting into data migration and other milestones in the coming months for organisations that are using Currents.

“Upgrading Google Currents to Spaces removes a separate, siloed destination for users, and provides organisations with a modern, enterprise-grade experience that reflects how the world is working today,” the company said. “Spaces provide a central place for teams to engage in topic-based discussions, share knowledge and ideas, move projects forward, and build communities and team culture,” it added.
