Google Will No Longer Support Authorship

Google Has Stopped Using Authorship Completely, Even for In-Depth Articles

Authorship is now officially and completely dead. Gary Illyes from Google said authorship is not used at all at Google anymore.

Gary Illyes, Google’s webmaster tends analyst, said at SMX Advanced that Google has completely stopped using authorship markup, even for use with in-depth articles.
But didn’t Google stop using authorship in August 2014? Yes, they did, but Google did keep using them for in-depth articles.
Up until October 2015, Google recommended that you keep authorship on your pages, but that advice now seems to be out the window.
