Google Adds Play Store App Installs From Google+
Have you been ensnared by the social networking magic of Google+ yet? Google’s got an uphill battle ahead of it if it ever hopes to make serious inroads against the Facebooks and Twitters of the world, but it continues to tweak the Google+ experience in hopes of delivering something that’s just a bit more compelling. The latest change is of special interest to Android users, making it easier than ever before to share apps you’ve discovered with your friends.
Paste a link to a Google Play store page into a Google+ update you’re preparing, and the service will now pull the app’s data from the store and give readers a quick way to install the app straight from their Google+ feeds.
Granted, we’re only talking about saving a click or two, but that doesn’t keep us from appreciating the elegance of this new system. If you’re in circles with a bunch of other enthusiastic Android users, expect to start seeing these app posts popping-up all over.
