Google Glass, the Alphabet Inc. wearable device that was pulled from the market in January 2015 after a decidedly mixed reception, could be dead after the company pulled all social media accounts connected to Glass, while its Google+ page featuring a “Goodbye” post. While an enterprise version of Google Glass is rumoured to be in development, it seems the consumer model is being quietly killed off.

The Google Glass Instagram account has now been closed:

While its Google+ page remains, its final post (now deleted, but recorded by the Daily Mail) is effectively saying goodbye to Google Glass “Explorers”. ‘Hi Explorers,” the post read, “we’ve had a blast hanging out with you on G+ throughout the Explorer Program. From now on, if you have any questions about your Glass, you can get in touch with us here.”

An FCC filing made last Summer suggests that Google Glass is not entirely dead, though. The team that developed the first version of the wearable is said to be developing an enterprise edition, under the working name of “Project Aura”, with Nest CEO Tony Fadell and designer Ivy Ross heading up the team, which may be an audio-only headset.
