Google Launches New Google+ Sign-In Platform
Search giant Google has reportedly launched the company's new Google+ Sign-In application, making the Google+ platform more user-friendly and more social than ever.
According to Google's Android Developers blog, the new platform offer users better integration with Google products, and providing new capabilities to use within their apps.
The Google+ Sign-In also lets users sign in to their Android app with their existing Google credentials, and bring along their Google+ information for an upgraded experience.
How this new Google+ Sign-In works is that after signing in with Google on your website, users will now have the option to install the Android app on their devices instantly. Users will also enjoy a seamless desktop-to-mobile experience.
In addition, if you sign in to Gmail, YouTube or any other Google service, you can now use your existing credentials to sign in to apps outside of Google. Google+ Sign-In also comes with the protections and safeguards you've come to expect from your Google account like 2-step verification, so you can always sign-in with confidence, according to Google.
Furthermore, users sharing stuff from an app using the Google+ Sign-In will let your friends see a new kind of "interactive" post in their Google+ stream. Clicking will take them inside the app, where they can buy, listen to, or review what you shared.
Some of the sites that will be using the new Google+ Sign-In platform includes Flixster, USA Today, Shazam, OpenTable and The Guardian.
With Google now expanding its social klout and its social reach with consumers and in the mainstream social media world, then I'd say other social networks like Facebook and Twitter ought to watch out!
