Reminder: Google to turn off Wave on April 30, 2012.

Google is definitely pulling the plug on Wave at the end of April this year. If you have been using the short-lived Wave, now is the time to export your data using the free PDF tool on the read only site. Note, that you may also also export your waves to open source platforms such as Walkaround.

More info in Google's reminder below.

Dear Wavers,
More than a year ago we announced that Google Wave would no longer be developed as a separate product. Back in November 2011, we shared the specific dates for ending this maintenance period and shutting down Wave. Google Wave is now in read-only mode. This is a reminder that the Wave service will be turned off on April 30, 2012. You will be able to continue exporting individual waves using the existing PDF export feature until the Google Wave service is turned off. We encourage you to export any important data before April 30, 2012.

If you would like to continue using Wave, there are a number of open source projects, including Apache Wave. There is also an open source project called Walkaround that includes an experimental feature that lets you import all your Waves from Google. This feature will also work until the Wave service is turned off on April 30, 2012.

For more details, please see our help center.

Yours sincerely,

The Wave Team
