Google Introduced Google Wave last year and it created a lot of waves in the tech world in the beginning but it faded into thin year soon. As Google didn’t get the expected response for Google Wave, It is planning to end the project by the end of this year.
Urs Hölzle, Senior Vice President, Operations said this in Google’s Official Blog. However the core parts of the code, as well as the protocols that have driven many of Wave’s innovations, like drag-and-drop and character-by-character live typing, are already available as open source, So that Developers can continue to develop the project.
Wave has taught us a lot, and we are proud of the team for the ways in which they have pushed the boundaries of computer science. We are excited about what they will develop next as we continue to create innovations with the potential to advance technology and the wider web.

Google will use the innovations of Wave in their other projects to. Google Wave started grandly but I didn’t expect this ending for Wave this much soon. Wave would of created a revolution in our way of communication, but Google failed to make it reach th masses by lack of advertisement and Wave’s difficult user interface.
