After twelve weeks of field trials, Google+ announced early yesterday that it is now [publicly] available.
The news came at 9:00 AM PST on Tuesday in a blog post on Google’s official blog. Open signups were among the nine new Google+ features that were unveiled:
“For the past 12 weeks we’ve been in field trial, and during that time we’ve listened and learned a great deal. We’re nowhere near done, but with the improvements we’ve made so far we’re ready to move from field trial to beta, and introduce our 100th feature; open signups. This way anyone can visit google.com/+, join the project and connect with the people they care about.” (Vic Gundotra, Google Senior Vice President of Engineering)
The other new features released yesterday are:
- Hangouts on your phone
- Hangouts on air
- Hangouts with extras (which includes four unique releases – screensharing, sketchpad, google docs, and named hangouts)
- Google+ search
- And, of course, public access – dubbed +Everyone (which I love)
Google+ now boasts 100 unique features that will be rolled out globally today. You can read the whole post on Google’s blog here.
