Google+ is quickly maturing into a contender in the social network space, and as Google’s social web of choice, it’s becoming ever more important to Android users. Today the official Google blog announced the addition of Pages, bringing Google+ even more in line with Facebook by offering brands, sites and, well, anything a way to make a centralized landing zone for all Google+ interactions. The feature is live already, but not everyone can create new pages at the moment.
In addition to the standard circle and +1 features you’d expect, Pages will allow businesses and other entities to take advantage of the live video systems built-in to Google+, with employees or fans. And of course, Pages will be accessible from regular old Google searches. The pages themselves look a lot like the regular Google+ profiles you’re already familiar with.
Check out the official video below:
Pages is a brand-spankin new feature, and while every Google+ user can access some ready-made pages like the Dallas Cowboys and The Muppets, not everyone can create pages just yet. Google’s been going through the updates for the Google+ Android app fast, so expect an update in the next few weeks that supports the Pages feature. And of course, we’ll be sharing the Android Community Google+ page with you just as soon as it’s ready. Oh, and Google’s Android team is already up, so add them to your circles now!
