Google has remained highly committed to the Google+ experience and are continually pushing out new features to improve upon it. Today, they’ve added the ability to reply to Google+ notifications from within Gmail. This is a great feature that allows you to comment, share, and +1 without leaving your inbox. It can be tedious sometimes to receive an email notification and then have to open up the app or navigate to the web client just to +1 a comment. This new feature should boost user engagement and make for a more enjoyable experience.
All responses made from Gmail will appear in the Google+ stream in real-time and vice versa, ensuring you’re always up-to-date with flow of interactions. It’s a great addition and one that will definitely increase my Google+ engagement. The new method will via your desktop browser or mobile device (and/or POP or IMAP client).
It’s not just Gmail either. Currently you can reply-by-email via any of the following:
- Android 2.5+
- iOS 5.0+
- Standard POP and IMAP clients
Google promises to update this list as more service become supported. For more information, visit the source link below.
