After Google’s GrandCentral acquisition, Reader Troy points out:
GrandCentral offers a range of truly useful features, but one that was just plain fun was “RingShare.” This allowed users to pick from a range of different ringtones (authentic Russian *beeeeeep*, anyone?), or — better yet — upload their own MP3 for a personalized ring, “please hold” message or muzak.
As of today, though, the MP3 option is no more. (See below)
I can’t complain about this decision; the legal liability for Google/GrandCentral isn’t worth it for what amounted to a non-essential, gee-whiz feature.
Well, I can complain. Why was this done? To avoid potential liability, right? In other words, caving to possible lawsuits instead of defending customer centric features. I hate the phone world.
