Google to Shut Down Gizmo5

If you are a Gizmo5 user and no one from Google has contacted you yet, I’m sorry to have to be the bearer of bad news: Find another VoIP quickly. Google purchased the company back in 2009, took what it needed to augment Gmail/Gtalk and is scrapping the rest. The carcass of Gizmo will probably be picked over for the foreseeable future, but as a service, its dead, Jim.

Today, the company has started informing users that it will be shutting down Gizmo5 service on April 3, 2011.
