Google has announced it's shutting down two-year-old Google Hire — a G Suite tool built for recruiters at small and midsized companies — on 1 September 2020  as the tech giant decides to invest more in other products in the Google Cloud portfolio.

No more new features will be added to the platform, but existing users can keep on using the tool until the end of their contracts or the official shutdown date. As a gesture of goodwill, current users will not be charged for the service after their next bill.

"While Hire has been successful, we’re focusing our resources on other products in the Google Cloud portfolio. We are deeply grateful to our customers, as well as the champions and advocates who have joined and supported us along the way," said Google in an email to customers.

The soon-to-be-gone job applicant tracking system was initially set up to simplify the hiring process by merging it with G Suite functions.
