Google+, the company's often ignored social network is creeping its way into Google's other products left and right, and according to an announcement out of Mountain View, we're soon to see it feature more prominently in our Gmail inboxes.
Google has wrapped up its Morning with Google+ event, and the Internet is abuzz with news and reviews surrounding the announcements. Amongst several other features, Google’s social network is getting a slew of new photo and video enhancement features, that intend on not just making the sharing experience better, but put Google in a position where the Mountain View company can compete directly with dedicated filter and photo-enhancement apps that are available for Android and iOS. Let’s take a look at what they announced for Google+ today.
Every so often Google does something that reminds everyone of just how close to the creepy line it likes to sail. With hooks into email, social networking and of course the entire Web, Google knows just about everything there is to know about us, and what we do online.
Ever since Google launched its own social network in the form of Google+, comparisons have been made left and right with the current king of the space, Facebook. Now that the search giant has announced that its fledgling network has reached the 100 million user milestone, those comparisons are once again being made.
For those iOS device owning social networking fans out there, the time has come to head on over to the App Store and see for yourself the direction which Google has decided to take with their iOS version of the Google+ app. After already going through a number of updates since initial launch, Google haven't really wowed anyone with their Google+ mobile app, but version 2.0 of the said app will definitely up the game a bit.
Google today took the interesting step of adding a feature to one of its products which could well be to the detriment of another.
Google has today brought forth a significant update for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users of its social network app: Google+. Google announced its Plus service, aimed to compete with the likes of Facebook, back in June, and it’s been in and out of news ever since. Google is possibly the only candidate capable of toppling Facebook, and after the "hello, goodbye" of its other iOS social app Photovine, the Big G has focused its efforts on improving the app for iDevice wielding Google+ users.
If you are a social media fanatic, then chances are high that you have seen users posting images from Instagram, which is an app exclusive to the iPhone that allows you to add effects to your images and post them on different social networks. Google, apparently wants in on the action.
