When you've launched over 100 APIs like Google has, some are bound to go away. The spring cleaning, as Google often describes the closures, have become commonplace since 2011. The Google Translate API is the only one to be announced and then turned into a paid service. Overall, of Google's 111 APIs, it has buried services for nearly 30% of them. Here it is, the complete list of Google APIs that are no more.

As you can see, the most recent Google APIs to be laid to rest were first released in 2011. Some of the older APIs from Google that are no longer available were among Google's first 10 APIs.
