Google Plus celebrates 250 million users by rolling out Events feature and tablet app

by: Bams SadewoJune 28, 2012

Slightly buried underneath the flurry of spectacles that were showcased at the first day of the Google I/O conference was the revamped Google+. The company’s premier social network has received two major updates: Google+ Events and Google+ for tablets.

Out of the 250 million users of Google+, Google said that the majority of the 150 million active users access it from a mobile device. With the introduction of the Google Nexus 7 tablet, it’s only fitting that Google+ has gained a native tablet app. Now we want to share more about  Google’s take on online event planning.

Google+ Events

Now this is something that we’d love to get on board with. Gone will be the [...]

Google promises to unify Google Talk, Hangouts, and Messenger

by: LucianJune 28, 2012

Ever since the launch of Google’s “social layer”, Google+, the guys in Mountain View have been trying to focus on fewer products, instead of the scatter-shot approach on products they had before. But while they have streamlined many of their products and services in the past months, there’s one area where things have gotten worse since the launch of Google+, and that’s Google’s own messenger clients.

There is Google Talk (with video), then there is Hangouts, and then we have the Google+ Messenger, originally launched as Google Huddle. You might even count the SMS app on Android as a different product – Apple actually unified [...]

by: Bogdan PetrovanJune 27, 2012

Today Google announced the availability of yhr Google Plus for Android tablets app, something that many Plus users have long requested. Asides from the obvious modifications to the interface, Google has added some cool new features, that should make using Google’s blossoming social network a joy.

Google to acquire Meebo for around $100 million, looks to strengthen Google+

by: AdrianJune 5, 2012

Google might be one of the most successful companies in the tech world, but that doesn’t mean that Larry Page and Sergey Brin are not permanently looking for ways to grow and expand their company.

Less than a week after integrating Zagat’s services in Google Maps, the Mountain View-based company has announced an even more important acquisition. Meebo will become Google’s subsidiary, after a transaction that many consider to be part of a strategy to expand and strengthen the Google Plus social networking service.

According to a still unconfirmed piece of information, Google will pay around $100 million for Meebo, a service founded in 2005 as a browser based [...]

All new Google+ app with Hangouts and fresh look is here

by: LucianMay 25, 2012

Google+ launched a year ago, and while it will not replace Facebook anytime soon, the budding social network got a lot of users so far. I even think that, while Google+ and Facebook share some similarities, in reality, Google+ is more like a long-form Twitter than a Facebook competitor. From my experience with it at least, you don’t really go there to share stuff with your “friends”, but to see what the authorities in some areas that you’re interested in are posting. Then comment on their posts, and +1 or share their posts with whomever you may have added to your circles.

One thing I liked about the Google+ mobile app ever since the beginning [...]

Google+ gets a new iPhone app with “sense and soul”, Android version in the next weeks

by: AdrianMay 11, 2012

Although Android users were used to being treated with priority access to Google+ updates, the latest version of the G+ app has hit Apple’s devices before becoming available in Google Play. Advertised as a “mobile app with sense and soul”, the new Google+ experience is a “feast for the eyes”, coming with several design tweaks, but also a couple of improvements to the app’s functionality.

I haven’t had a chance to test the new Google+ mobile app (no, I don’t own an iPhone, in case you had any doubts), but the official photos look indeed sexy! The fonts are crisper, the profile pics are larger, the home screen looks more elegant and “friendlier” and you can simply feel [...]

Extreme Makeover: Google Plus Edition

by: Ankit BanerjeeApril 11, 2012

Google Plus was Google’s answer to Facebook’s utter domination in the social networking arena. Many questioned whether Google Plus would be able to make a dent in Facebook’s sprawling social empire. Regardless of critics, it appears that Google’s social bet is playing out quite well. Since the launch of Google Plus last summer, the social networking has been growing at a significant rate, and now boasts over 170 million users.

If you are a part of the Google Plus community, you must have been surprised to see a massive change to the site’s layout today, or what the team is calling a “simpler, more beautiful [...]
