It's tough to rely on Google products these days. It seems like every other month that the company announces that it will kill off yet another product or service. There's even a website that tracks these things.The most recent Google service to hit the chopping block is Google Poly, a 3D asset repository for low poly-count models for mobile projects.

Google Poly first launched while Google's Daydream VR platform was still a thing that existed. Google killed off Daydream recently, and without its mobile VR platform to drive the need for Poly, the company is no longer keeping the service around.

For now, Google Poly will operate as usual. Google will begin to spin down the product on April 30, when you will no longer be able to submit new models to the platform. Downloads will continue to be available through June 30, 2021, after which the servers will go offline forever.

The Poly website already warns users to download their libraries before it's too late.
