Tech Giant Google To Shut Down Social App “Neighbourly”

Google said that it plans to learn the lessons from Neighbourly and utilise it to improve their other products

Google has announced that it is shutting down its Q&A social app Neighbourly on May 12, as the project did not take off as expected.

The search engine giant unveiled the app in May 2018 as a test in Mumbai to let users explore their neighborhood with help from local experts.

Later in November, it expanded its base to a few more cities in the country including Delhi and Bengaluru.

“As a community, you’ve come together to celebrate local festivals, shared crucial information during floods, and answered over a million questions. But the app hasn’t grown like we had hoped,” it added.

Google said that it plans to learn the lessons from Neighbourly and utilise it to improve their other products.
