Google App Maker will soon be unavailable next year from January 19. The decision was taken after the tech giant noticed that the service wasn’t going as planned and had low usage. The company advised the app’s users to prepare accordingly and export the relevant data.
On January 27th this year, though the tool continued to addresses critical bugs, it was no longer under active development. Then on April 15th, it disallowed developers to create new apps on the platform. 19th January 2021 will mark the platform’s end.
Though Google App Maker will stop working from next year, the data stored in Cloud SQL will remain unchanged
Since the platform uses a distinct source code, users of App Maker will be unable to transfer their applications to another platform directly. The company thus suggests Google’s another app development service that is akin to App Maker named AppSheet. AppSheet will enable customers to build apps that leverage other properties of Google such as Google Sheets, Analytics, Android, Maps, and Forms.
Available to the users of GSuite enterprise, Google App Maker allowed firms to deploy an application without having to invest massively on coding. With the help of this low-code development platform, a user could merely drag and drop with built-in templates into the visual editor.
