Google Labs had about 56 products under test.
Company says it wants to focus on new ‘major product’.
Google announced on Wednesday (20) via its official blog that is ending the activities of Google Labs. The project gathered at an experimental stage products created by engineers of the company so that users could test them.

In a message on the site, Bill Coughran, vice president of research and systems infrastructure at Google, said it would require “more focus if the company wants to make the most of opportunities that arise ahead.” He said many of the products which have emerged in Labs and are available in Android Market application store the operating system of the company, continue to be available. “Labs Products can still be incorporated into other areas,” he said.
