Google Ending URL Shortener Support In Favor Of Dynamic Links
02 April, 2018, 00:34
Google has announced that it will shut down its URL shortener service, also known as "goo.gl" next month followed by a complete closure by 2019. From April 13, 2018 only existing users will be able to create short links on the goo.gl console. For developers, Google is letting only projects with existing access to the URL Shortener APIs before yesterday to create truncated links.
Google is replacing goo.gl with Firebase Dynamic Links. The latter group is being directed to Firebase Dynamic Links with today's announcement meant to "refocus" Google's efforts. In the meantime the service will continue to operate and users can still create short links until the 30th of March, 2019.
While the service has provided a lot of usefulness to users, there's some bad news for those who use the service. However following that, users won't be able to access other goo.gl features and its console.

"[The goo.gl] URL Shortener has been a great tool that we're proud to have built".
The ultimate reason for this shuttering is that Google wants to push developers towards Firebase Dynamic Links, a new link format that allows website and app developers to use one link to dictate multiple destinations, based entirely on the context.
As for developers, FDL short links will automatically detect the user's platform and send the user to either the web or your app, whichever is appropriate. In short, FDLs are a far more robust solution for short links than previous deep link versions and a better all-round solution in general. How often do you use a link shortening service?
