Google Is Shutting Down goo.gl URL Shortener From March 30 2018

The popular goo.gl URL shortener will be shut down as Google announced in a blog post and in a notification to end support for the goo.gl URL shortener service to replace with its new Firebase Dynamic Links (FDL) – which will enable you link to a location within a Web app, iOS and Android.
From April 13, 2018, only existing users will be able to short links on the goo.gl console and you will also be given the opportunity to view your analytics data and download
 short link information in CSV format for up to one year.

Until March 30, 2019, when goo.gl URL shortener will finally be deleted and existing URLs will continue to redirect to their intended destinations.

According to the announcement said:

Starting March 30, 2018, we will be turning down support for goo.gl URL shortener. From April 13, 2018 only existing users will be able to create short links on the goo.gl console. 

You will be able to view your analytics data and download your short link information in csv format for up to one year, until March 30, 2019, when we will discontinue goo.gl. 

Previously created links will continue to redirect to their intended destination.

Google suggests users to switch to Firebase Dynamic Link (FDL) and other URL shortening services like bitly.com and Ow.ly.

Google main purpose for the sudden deactivation of goo.gl URL shortener service is still unknown. So what could be the reason for the shut down, that's what we are going to find out soon.
