Google URL Shortener Is Shutting Down: What You Must Do

Google Google URL Shortener Google URL Shortener shut down Google URL Shortener discontinued

Still, Google is not planning on making money off the goo.gl links already out there, which means they'll still work, but no new ones could be created.

Back in December 2009, Google introduced its URL shortening service now known as goo.gl (or Google URL Shortener, for those talking about it at some fancy white collar event). Google has suggested developers to use Firebase Dynamic Links which allows single links to lead to different destinations depending on the type of device they're accessed from. Even as Google is pushing users to use the FDL after April 13th, existing links will not be automatically migrated to the Firebase console or it's API.

Frosh lead CV softball to another 20-something run win
Webb brought in the first Gustie runner in the third with a single while Carlson was brought home on a bunt an inning later. Junior utility player Tyra Smith had three hits and sophomore pitcher/first baseman Jacy Finley had 3 RBIs and 3 hits.

Google has announced it is winding down its URL shortener named goo.gl starting April 13 and asked users to consider using app-centric Firebase Dynamic Links (FDL) or similar popular services like Bitly and Ow.ly as an alternative. Existing users will have access to all features until March 30, 2019. For example, I purchased the jaduino.me domain and after it was linked with Bit.ly, it became my shortened URL. After this period, all links will continue to redirect. "We're excited to grow and improve the product going forward". Additionally, development projects that have not used the URL Shortener APIs before May 30, 2018, will not be able to create short links with the service. Once you have an account, creating a short link is as easy as clicking on the Create Bitlink button. Despite, Google has made a decision to shut down its short URL service goo.gl in the wake of increasing number of offerings by the third party providers.

As for the new users, the company recommends trying the new FDLs service to create their shorter links.
