Google Plus for G Suite changed its name to Currents
Date: 11 April 2019
On Wednesday, the search giant said they would rename Google Plus for G Suite to Currents. As a successor, the latter will adopt a new UI and features. Corporate customers can participate in early testing, and content originally on Google Plus will be automatically transferred to Currents.
Google initially planned to shut down the Google Plus service in August of this year, but a vulnerability exposed in October last year led to the exposure of more than 500,000 people using the site between 2015 and March 2018, so Google decided to shut down the Google+ Process.
According to Google, Currents allows users to easily tag their posts and attach images or other files that others can comment on. Administrators can submit requests to access the beta by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
