Google is going to shut down 16 years old service, know how you can be harmed

Search giant Google is soon going to shut down its 16 year old service in India. The name of this service is Google Bookmarks which will be closed for all users on 30 September 2021. A banner running on the page of Google Bookmarks reads that Google Bookmarks will not be supported after September 30, 2021. That's why the company is asking users to export the bookmarks. Users
can copy their data by going to google.com/bookmarks and clicking on 'Export Bookmarks'.

Even though Bookmarks is not a very popular service, but after its closure, some features present in Google Maps may be affected, which is still present in Google Bookmarks. Both these apps were in sync but turning off Google Bookmarks meant that the users 'Starred' location would also be deleted. However, things have not been completely clear about it so far. According to 9to5Google, one way for users is to switch the list that Maps saves these places to sync only with 'Starred' list bookmarks.

Google Maps allows users to add their favorite places to a list that can be viewed later. For this, you have to open Google Map by clicking or searching by setting Business, Place or Latitude and Longitude and then save your list. Only users can find saved places.
