Google+ Android App Available, But Useless If You Have No Invite
Google has just made splash awhile ago by launching its latest social project called – Google+. There’s a long post over at the Official Google Blog right now explaining what Google+ is and what is available right now. From what I can gather, it looks like the app is yet again, Google’s take on the social networking, social sharing, location-sharing mobile and web service. In other words, it’s Facebook, Foursquare, and other social services rolled into one. Unfortunately, Google+ is still by invitation only. If you managed to score an invite to Google+, you might want to check out the Android Market and grab the Google+ Android app which is available now. Obviously, Google+ Android app is a complimentary mobile app to the Google+ service. Once the project is fully operational, I’m pretty sure this Android app is going to be the be-all and end-all of this Google project. That’s why Google launched it at the same time as Google+ was officially launched. So what does the app can do? It pretty much gives you all the features of Google+ including Huddle, Instant Upload, Circles, and Streams. These are the four core features of Google+ which were launched by Google just now. Huddle is for sending messages to your circle of Google+ friends, Instant Upload is for photo and video sharing, Circles is for sharing just about anything that you want to share with your friends, and Streams is obviously the news stream where you’ll get updates from your circles. Google+ Android app is available now as a free download from the Android Market.
