Google+ Adds Chat With People In Your Circles [News]

Google Plus Icon Logo   Google+ Adds Chat With People In Your Circles [News]Google is relentless when it comes to adding new features to Google+. It seems like nearly every day I see something new showing up on my Google+ profile, and today is no exception. Google+ now has a chat built right in for people in your circles. Of course, they must have you in their circles as well, otherwise that would just lead to a ridiculous amount of people spamming celebrities. It’s a feature that makes sense, considering their main competitor, Facebook, has had a chat feature for a long time.

The intriguing part about this update is that it allows users who are in each others circles to chat outside of Google+. They can chat on Gmail, iGoogle, Google Talk and Orkut. This gives users a terrific way to extend the Google+ experience, even if they are not actively on the site.

I can’t figure out how this is different. Couldn’t we do this before? I guess not, but what was it that we could do before?

Before you could only talk with people whom you had talked to on G-talk, like in Gmail and on your G-talk phone app, and you had to invite someone not in that list, now you can talk with anyone that are circle to circle :)

Well just because you don’t have them on your gchat list doesn’t mean you don’t know them personally.
