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.

Adam DuVander Hi! I'm Developer Communications Director for SendGrid and former Executive Editor of ProgrammableWeb. I currently serve as a Contributing Editor. If you have API news, or are interested in writing for ProgrammableWeb, please contact editor@programmableweb.com Though I'm a fan of anything API-related, my particular interest is in mapping. I've published a how-to book, Map Scripting 101, to get anyone started making maps on websites. In a not-so-distant past life I wrote for Wired and Webmonkey.
