Google has confirmed that it will drop services for tracking energy use and health information in the coming months.
Google PowerMeter will be retired on 16 September and Google Health on 1 January. Data will remain accessible for one additional year.
The company is encouraging users of both applications to download any data they may have saved before the applications are taken offline.
Google Health was launched in May 2008 as a secure way for people to access their medical history and perscription data through a single location across multiple health care providers and employers.
Google PowerMeter was launched in 2009 as a way for users to track home energy use by linking with smart meters. One year later, the company debuted an API which allowed third-party software and home appliance makers to link the platform into their own products.
"Both were based on the idea that, with more and better information, people can make smarter choices, whether in regard to managing personal health and wellness, or saving money and conserving energy at home," Google said of the two products in a post to its official blog.
"While they didn't scale as we had hoped, we believe they did highlight the importance of access to information in areas where it's traditionally been difficult."
