And yes, if you thought spam was the reason, you're absolutely right.

On Android, you can receive notifications with tips and offers if you are near anything, such as a restaurant or museum.

And yes, if you thought spam was the reason, you're absolutely right.

On Android, you can receive notifications with tips and offers if you are near anything, such as a restaurant or museum.

Even though the idea is good, it did not work as well in practice. The feature has become the subject of spam, something Google has noticed.

They explain that they have "detected a significant increase in irrelevant and spam-like alerts."

Not good enough
By the end of the year, the company has decided to terminate the service, which was introduced to Android three years ago.

"Our goal was to bring relevant and engaging content to our users. Developers have benefited from this technology to let users know where there's free wifi nearby, offer to guide in museums, and show departures on buses, "Google has said about the feature.

Users have been able to turn it on and off, but Google now believes it's not good enough.

"Ultimately, we found that these alerts did not meet our quality requirements. As a result, we have decided to terminate the support for Alerts in the vicinity. "

The date is set to December 6th, so after this, you will not receive such alerts, Google will write on their developer blog.
