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

Ads by Google

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.

    yeah, but who actually contacts someone you don’t know personally for a google chat ?

    • Dave LeClair

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

    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 :)

    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?
