Google Pulling “Wave” Due to Lack of Interest

Google Inc. said Wednesday it is pulling the plug on its “Google Wave” collaborative messaging service due to a lack of user interest.

Unveiled last year amid much fanfare, Wave was supposed to revolutionize the way people communicated online by letting them exchange messages in real-time and collaboratively edit documents. It was regarded by some in the tech community as part email, part Twitter and part instant messaging.

But the service was confusing to many prospective users and will now join a long list of failed projects that Google has launched over the years as it pushes to expand beyond its core online search advertising business.
