Exporting your waves

Tuesday, November 9, 2010 | 11:14 AM


We're dedicated to giving you better access to the information you currently have in Google's Wave servers. We aim to provide multiple ways to let you export and migrate that information, and we have some updates for you in this blog post.

Today, we're announcing a feature that lets you download your Google Wave content as a Zip file. Within any wave, you can now select "Export" which will let you save your current view of the wave, plus any attachments that have been added along the way. We hope this feature proves a useful way of sharing the information that you have in waves. For more information on it, please visit this help center article.

This feature is useful if you have a few waves that you want to export. We are aiming to have a export method for those that have a lot of waves, and will let you know when that's available.

As we announced back in August, we'll continue to keep wave.google.com running at least through the end of the year. In addition, we're working on ways for you to access waves through Google Docs and we hope to share more on our progress soon.

Lastly, if you are interested in developing on the Wave codebase or running your own Wave server to host your waves, check out our developer blog post about the Wave in a Box project.
