CallJoy by Google is Closing Its Doors

On July 22, 2020, CallJoy, a service by Google, is shutting down. A Google spokesperson provided the following statement: “Like all projects from Area 120, CallJoy was an experiment. We’re proud of the team’s work and achievements, and we look forward to seeing the great things they’ll continue to do at Google.”

CallJoy was launched in May 2019. The virtual agent SaaS offering answered calls, filtered spam (including inside sales calls) and provided basic business information (e.g. , hours) to consumers. It cost $39 per month. This is always a challenging time for customers and employees. Our thoughts go out to those who may be experiencing difficulty.
