Google Reader gets a new look! Is now systematic and gives option to +1

November 2, 2011

That’s right. Google Reader is getting revamped. In the past couple of months every Google product has got the new Google look, starting from Google+, Gmail, Calendar, Docs etc. Now its Google Reader’s time.

The new Google Reader interface is similar to Gmail’s interface. Also Google Reader has now integration with Google+ to share the posts on Google’s very own social network. The “Like” button on feed items too has been replaced by “+1” button.

According to the official blog post, Software Engineer Alan Green said that,

“Integrating with Google+ also helps us

streamline Reader overall. So starting today we’ll be turning off friending, following, shared items and comments in favor of similar Google+ functionality.”

Google Reader gets a new interface

We all know that previous look of Google Reader wasn’t so smartly design, many links and feeds were poorly arranged and overall it messed up the interface. This new look gives a systematic interface to Google Reader for a user to get to things very easily.

Many of them are not comfortable adapting to the new interface and already people are complaining about Google eliminating many features from the Google Reader. However if you are one of those who do like the new interface then please comment and share your views with us.

    I accessed your blog from the new interface. The previous interface was showing many posts in one page, but the new one shows only a few of them. Also, the Manage Blogs is two clicks away, when compared to the one click previously. I thought that the old interface was perfect – Don’t know why Google wants to change interfaces that are already good! But I guess we’ll get used to it shortly.

    I am not getting one point that why Google eleminating their BUZZ service

    • GAUTAM

      perhaps becoz it has failed as a social network…nobody even interacts on buzz nowadays, let alone sharing of articles :/

        Dude but why they are completely eliminating. They can keep it as it is. they do not have any harms from that I think so!!!

        • GAUTAM

          perhaps becoz they dont have the resources to keep it running…that’s the reason many google products recently suffered a setback too such as labs, google’s health and powermeter…the team is concentrating to develop core apps such as google+ and all! :(
