Google has stepped forward to open Google plus to everyone after testing it with a limited audience version covering period of 12 weeks. In a blog post on Tuesday, Google said that it will let anyone sign up for Google Plus which were previously available by invitation only.
Google also added a new search capability to Google Plus.
This attempt by Google is in response to Facebook’s f8 conference held two days ahead in San Francisco where the company is expected to unveil several new features
Google also made Plus’s “Hangouts” feature —which lets users video chat with multiple people at a time— available on smartphones with front-facing cameras. The feature currently works with phones running Google’s Android system. Google says support for Apple devices is coming soon.
