Hangout APIs

Google release the so called incomplete APIs for the developers which is limited for them to serve their application to be made for Google+. Today they added the APIs for the Hangout so that the developer can create different types of apps and games that can associate with Hangout.

Search box in Google+

Everybody Know Google because of their relevant searches  that they bring through the web to the users query. Isn't that strange that Google's Social site the  Google+ is without a search. "You’ve been asking for it, and we’ve been busy building it" what Gundotra says on the post. Now  a search box had been added to Google+ which allow user to find peoples (though it was there) and their posts around the Google+ along with this it allow shows the relevant search result around the web.




Six more for Mobiles


  • Improved SMS support: Users in the India and US  by verifying their mobile no can share directly  to Google+ via SMS. They will  also receive the notifications and can give responds messages to the groups. While the users of other countries have to wait.
  • Improved +mentions support: Lie Twitter where people use @ tomention some one there, now the same feature came in Google+.To have mention someone just do +[their name] inside a post or comment. 
  • +1’ing comments. iOS device now allow to +1 the comments to but for Android there is little more time to go for supporting it.
  • Google+ allow to edit picture profile easily on mobile devices too.
  • Allow which notification to view on Mobile.
  • Google+ Apps can be store on SD for Android devices.




Huddle renamed as Messenger


Google says that they are Moving from Trail to Beta so they are renaming the Huddle as messenger. Also the New feature allowing the sahring things at the moment is added to it.


Google+ is now open to Fight with Facebook and twitter but it still have to do allots to reach the milestone that Facebook and twitter have achieved. Much more is that the 3rd party apps so they should resales the API as quickly as in it full form not in limited access. It is era of mobiles and tablets so Google+ apps should be avialbel for user low end mobile device then only it get attention.
