While we have heard that Google might be working on a Google Plus app for Windows Phone 7, today they’ve updated their mobile site to actually support Internet Explorer 7/8 based browser on current Windows Phone 7 devices. Previously, Google+ (plus.google.com) complained that it no longer supported the browser by Windows Phone and suggested using a modern desktop browser. The basic mobile view of Google Plus on Windows Phone 7 noticably lacks some features you might find on a dedicated mobile app such as photo upload, locating nearby streams and Huddle (group messaging).
Ideally if Google Plus were to gain traction (and API’s were opened up to 3rd parties), Microsoft should be able to simply create their own client plug-in that integrates the social networking site with their current Windows Live Social system which is already capable of some excellent aggregation of feeds from a variety of social networking sites such as Facebook, LinkedIn, MySpace, Hyves, and soon we expect to see Twitter integration there as well. However, considering Google will not allow Microsoft to create better integration with Youtube on Windows Phone, I’m not holding my breath.
