Latitude will be retired

Google Latitude will be retired on August 9th, 2013. Products being retired include Google Latitude in Google Maps for Android, Latitude for iPhone, the Latitude API, the public badge, the iGoogle Gadget, and the Latitude website at maps.google.com/latitude.
What does this mean for me?
  • You’ll no longer be able to share your location using Latitude after retirement.
  • We haven’t included Latitude as a feature in the latest version of Google Maps for mobile on Android and we’ll remove Latitude for iPhone on the App Store.
  • We’ll delete your list of friends on Latitude. You won’t be able to see or manage friends. Any existing friends will no longer see your location in Google Maps for mobile on Android, Latitude for iPhone, the public badge, the iGoogle Gadget, and the Latitude website at maps.google.com/latitude, if you continue to use these products.
You’ll also see other changes:
  • Third Party Applications
    Applications that use the Latitude API will no longer be able to access your location data, including Location History data, on Google servers. However, these non-Google applications may continue to store data they’ve already accessed. Please contact the developer of these applications for more information.
  • Latitude Privacy Reminders
    We’ll remove the privacy reminder settings and you’ll no longer receive email reminders.
  • Check-ins
    We’ll remove check-ins from Google Maps for mobile. Any previously enabled automatic check-ins will also be turned off. But don't worry, you’ll be able to check in and view your past check-ins on Google+.
