Posted September 21, 2018 12:21:14In a move that will surely have a chilling effect on the future of online media and a key part of Google’s strategy, Google will no longer be able to create its own online media marketplace for media publishers.
In a blog post published on Friday, the search giant said it was scrapping the product, which was launched in 2018.
It is expected to be replaced by an online marketplace built by a team from the media business, which will be overseen by the search company’s editorial teams.
Google said the move would help to “further reduce the amount of time and money that publishers and content owners spend managing and managing their own content”.
The move follows the collapse of the media marketplace business last year, which saw media organisations, including the Guardian, axing their own websites and instead focusing on using Google’s own media services.
This led to concerns among publishers and other media owners that Google would move the entire media business on to its own platform.
The move to replace the media-marketing product is likely to mean a loss of millions of dollars for publishers.
However, the new online marketplace is expected for a later release, likely to be in 2020.
The move comes after Google announced it would be ending the relationship with The Guardian over its coverage of the Brexit referendum.
The newspaper has said it will now focus on building its own media operations and not rely on Google to create a platform for its content.
Google also said it would also be shutting down the Google Play store and removing ads from its mobile apps.
The news comes after the company revealed that its Google+ social network had more than a billion users, making it the largest social network in the world.
The company has said that the move will help to make its services more appealing to users, and that the new service will be more affordable.
The digital marketplace is now part of a new product, called Google Play, that Google announced in February 2018.
Google Play, which launched in April 2018, lets publishers sell content on the Google site, including books, music, games, and apps, for free.
The Google Play Store, which started as a free service in 2017, has since become a service that can be used to buy products and services from other publishers.
Google Play launched with a $30 million funding round, and raised $1.6 billion from investors including Amazon, Google Ventures, and SoftBank, the parent company of Google parent company Alphabet.
Google’s new media marketplace will be managed by an editorial team that includes people with a track record of working in media and the internet industries.
