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 The “Like” button on feed items too has been replaced by “+1” button.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.”
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.
