Google's Ambitious Project Ara Has Been Canned

By 09:37 Thu, 05 Aug 2021 Comments

If you recall, just a few months ago, Google revealed that the Developer Edition of its much-hyped Project Ara modular smartphone will start shipping this descend - in fact, Ara's official website still says that. However, a recent report from Reuters says that the company has suspended the project.

Citing a couple of sources, the report notes that the go is "part of a broader push to streamline the company's hardware efforts."

While that's certainly poor news for those who were looking forward to the product, there seems to be a silver lining - the report notes that Google may license Ara's technology to others, opening a possibly for an Ara-like phone sometime in future.

A Google spokesperson declined to offer any comment on the matter.
