The short answer is yes; and most recently earlier this month. The software: Google Wave. If you haven’t heard about it don’t feel too badly as it never created the buzz Google was looking for.
About a year ago, Google came out with a product called Google Wave. It was touted as a real-time collaboration and communication system. Google Wave comprised all forms of Web 2.0 including; instant messaging, wikis, social media, chat, email, and more.
The issue is that Google Wave just hasn’t taken off. People have not taken to it the way they have with Facebook. Google will continue to provide the service until the end of the year. While Wave may be down for the count, there’s always another match not too far in the distance, and I can’t imagine Google giving up.
