Google shuts down Google Labs Google has said this week that it will begin winding down "Google Labs," the company's more experimental prototypes.
Says the search giant:

While we’ve learned a huge amount by launching very early prototypes in Labs, we believe that greater focus is crucial if we’re to make the most of the extraordinary opportunities ahead.

In many cases, this will mean ending Labs experiments—in others we’ll incorporate Labs products and technologies into different product areas. And many of the Labs products that are Android apps today will continue to be available on Android Market.

The company does note that they will not be ending the in-product experimentation channels like Gmail Labs. "We'll continue to experiment with new features in each of our products," adds Google.
