Google LLC shuttered its URL shortener (commonly known as ‘goo.gl’) for new users back in March 2018 but, as of April 2019, existing users of the Google URL shortener will no longer be able to create new links. This is most likely to move users towards ‘Firebase Dynamic Links‘ by Firebase (a subsidiary of Google’s parent company Alphabet Inc.). Unfortunately, ‘Firebase Dynamic Links’ isn’t user-friendly and simple like the Google URL shortener.
Fortunately, there’s a simple and easy-to-use alternative I highly recommend. It’s called unfold.online and it’s awesome!
