Google+ Now Available to Google Apps

Google+, a social platform from Google opened to the public earlier this fall. Since its launch, Google has made so many additions and changes in its social network. Google currently is not leaving any stone unturned to promote its social platform with an aim to make it a potential competitor of its big rival Facebook. Recently, Google’s CEO Larry Page announced that the service has already hit 40 million users – massive figures for a young service.

When the service was made able to the public, there’d been a group of people ignored completely by Google, the Google Apps users. Google Apps is in fact a suite of products sold by Google to businesses and schools, offering custom domains, administration controls, boosted security and certain other key features. Initially Google+ was launched without a support for Google Apps and this frustrated a lot of users.

Good news for Google Apps users that Google has finally made Google+ available to Google Apps. A post on the Google Enterprise blog:

Starting now you can manually turn on Google+ for your organization. Once Google+ is turned on, your users will just need to sign up at google.com/+ to get started. For customers who use Google Apps for Business or the free version of Google Apps and who have chosen to automatically enable new services, Google+ will automatically become available to all of your users over the next several days.

An announcement from Google suggests that Google Apps users can now able to sign up for Google+.

Google Apps users now with Google+ support are capable of sharing posts directly to other users within their workgroups and educational institutes. Google also said that they are working on designing a migration tool enabling existing Google+ users to port their personal accounts over to their Apps accounts. Interestingly, you will be able to keep both Circles and followers. The project is still in the pipeline, said Google.
