The time has finally arrived for Google+ to be available for everyone. If you have not been able to get a Google+ beta invite from someone, you no longer need to worry. Google is finally ready to truly go head to head with other social networking giants like Facebook and Twitter.
According to Google, they have made exactly 99 improvements to Google+ and the 100th is making Google+ available to everyone. All you have to do is head over to Google.com/+ and click the Sign In button to sign in with your regular Google account and create your Google+ profile. Of course, if you don’t have a Google account you can click the create new account button to make one.
This is great news for everyone who wants to join Google+. Now they won’t feel left out in the dark. For those of us already on Google+, now we can actually have some more people on there, and the place won’t feel like a ghost town as much….hopefully.
Another part of this update to Google+ is video hangouts on mobile devices. Now you can get together with your friends and video chat right from your phone. Sadly, mobile hangouts only work on Android 2.3+ devices, but Google is promising support for iOS devices soon.
