On March 7, 2019, all Google+ APIs will be shut down. This will be a progressive shutdown beginning in late January, with calls to these APIs starting to intermittently fail as early as January 28, 2019.

Official Updates from Google about G+

There haven't been any more as of 8-Jan-2019.

It's 3 months since the initial announcement from Google on 8-Oct-2018.

It's just under one month since the expediting announcement from Google on 10-Dec-2018 that chopped 4 months off the sunset date.

It's 2 months until the G+ API closes on 7-Mar-2019.

It's 3 months (ish) until Google Plus closes in April 2019. We still don't know the exact date.

We still don't know the actual mechanics of what happens on the date G+ closes. Will it go read only for a while? Will all G+ URLs return 404? Will Takeout remain available for a while?

As far as I can tell there's been no announcement about what's going to happen to G+ integration into Blogger. That's profiles, comments, widgets, share buttons and so on. There's nothing on the official Blogger blog and nothing in the Blogger product forums.

There's been no announcements about bugs, fixes or changes to Takeout. Although Google has been silently updating and breaking it.

There's been no announcement about how long Takeout will be available to download G+ content.

There's been no attempt to contact G+ users direct.

There's no indication within G+ that G+ is closing down. You would expect some kind of header warning message but there's nothing.

There's nothing in the G+ Help pages to indicate that G+ is closing down.

There's nothing in the product description to say that G+ is closing down.

There's nothing in the Apps or App description to say that G+ is closing down.

People are still arriving in the G+Help community saying "Is it true G+ is closing down"?

There's been no clarification and answers to all the many questions people have about the G+ Sunset and it's ramifications. Even trusted support people are having to say "we think that, maybe, we hope, etc". And this is about major issues such as whether publicly visible Profiles will survive or what happens to photos attached to G+ posts.

So that's 2 blog posts. 2 posts about the API. And that's the sum total of Google's official communications about closing a platform used by millions.

Is Google just ignoring us, hoping we'll go away?

And as for API usage,
- Switch code that uses the G+ People API to the G People API
- Switch G+ Signon to G Signon
- Kill your apps and web pages that use the G+ REST API
- Remove your buttons, widgets, embeds, share icons and so on,
And do it soon because it's all switched off 7-Mar-2019

Google+ APIs will shut down on March 7, 2019 and API calls may fail intermittently as early as January 28

Details here →

Please read our blog post for more info on the transition, what it means for developers that use the platform, and our investment in G+ for enterprise organizations.

A reminder. The Google Plus API will close down on or before 10-Mar-2019.

That's 90 days from this announcement.

While it's still available, the API is here.

It has 2 halves.
- Web. This is all the visible buttons, badges, referred signin, embedded posts, comments in blogger, etc, etc.
- REST. This is the programmers API.

The People section of the REST G+API is already deprecated. It is replaced by the Google People API. This also replaces the Contacts API. It is expected that this will continue.

Hi community, I just wanted to create new web-app by using google+ hangout API to use the power of hangout video So google provided any alternate api to developer?

Is it possible to download all usernames, posts and comments off a Google+ community?

What will happen to all the G+ buttons, badges, embedded posts and so on, after or around the G+ Sunset?

We just don't know, because Google hasn't yet made any announcements about any of these.

Prompted by this post.

8 Months and counting.

(Asking here, not knowing where to ask, please)
