Google Play all set to rock the streets

Google Play makes it to the Navigation Bar: Just one click to Android Apps

As you would have seen this morning. Google’s navigation bar has an yet another addition. Its time for Google Play. As you know Google had recently revealed the Google Play platform to experience and share the unique features it offers for the Android users.

Basically, it is a transformation of Google Market into Google Play which gives you a one stop shop to listen to music, watch movies, and read ebooks on your Droid. Apart from that you can also browse through 1000’s of android apps.

The recent addition of Google Play icon in the navigation bar (highlighted with a red colored NEW label) makes it more easier for us to access Google Play content. Placed between the very popular Google Maps and Google’s very own video service YouTube, Google Play is likely to get more Clicks from visitors all over the world.

According to the Official blog post,

Entertainment is supposed to be fun. But in reality, getting everything to work can be the exact opposite—moving files between your computers, endless syncing across your devices, and wires…lots of wires. Today we’re eliminating all that hassle with Google Play, a digital entertainment destination where you can find, enjoy and share your favorite music, movies, books and apps on the web and on your Android phone or tablet.

As you can see the glossy Google Play logo also looks good as a favicon in any browser.

You should also know that apart from offering free apps, Google Play has integrated Google Music too and you can now stream or buy music right from the Play Store. To download music and videos just sign in to your Google account and then purchase apps with the help of Google’s pay service, the Google Checkout.

After download your Music will stay on Google servers as the whole thing is Cloud based and you needn’t worry about copying your files to other android devices too, because the sync will happen automatically, assuming you have already configured your synchronization settings!

Google+ has games up its sleeve. A new Gaming network to start

Google+ is starting a new gaming platform on its social network. Vic Gundotra, the Senior VP of the Google Plus Team announced it officially on the blog yesterday.

Soon you will be seeing a new tab on your Google+ page. The tab will be placed next to the Circles tab and will be all about Games. Like Facebook, Google+ thinks that a social interaction isn’t just limited to conversations, it is about the real life experiences.

According to the blog post,

With the Google+ project, we want to bring the nuance and richness of real-life sharing to the web. But sharing is about more than just conversations. The experiences we have together are just as important to our relationships. We want to make playing games online just as fun, and just as meaningful, as playing in real life.

You can also brag about your scores to other people and vice versa. The Privacy feature in Google+ is very easy to fiddle with. As Google+ states it is not compulsory for you to be interested in games too, you can easily switch off the game tab and then you will only see conversations from your friends.

Google+ currently has an attractive set of games to begin with like Angry Birds, Crime City and Sudoku. Start the gaming fun right now! Here is a sneak peek about how the gaming experience will be on Google+.

Comment if you liked this story? Do you think Google+ gaming feature will be a hit compared to Facebook games? Let us know.

Google Plus deleting accounts

Google Plus is deleting accounts! Save your G+ account.

That’s right. Google Plus is on a spree deleting as many fake accounts as possible. The hunt started on Saturday, the 23rd and since then we have seen a massive decline in the number of people using Google plus.

This is a post to inform you how you can save yourself from getting deleted from the Google plus team. Google doesn’t inform you whether your account will be deleted or not, it just deletes it. Period.

Stop using fake names

The main reason why Google is deleting these many accounts is that it has found many fake profiles on the social network. Crucial one being usage of fake names. If Google finds you using a duplicate name or a name which is used a promote a brand or a company then your profile will immediately into the trash queue.

Google Plus Be yourself

Google+ is calling it a community standards policy and according to that it is mandatory for every person to use his/her real names only. You should use the names exactly as it appears on your Government ID cards. You wont be spared even if you are a celebrity, for e.g. some famous personalities like Arianna Huffington, Todd Vierling, Limor Fried, Kirrily Skud Robert, A.V. Flox and Doctor Popular’s accounts were suspended as well.

ZDNet humorously referred if Lady Gaga’s account was to be suspended as well! So be careful while choosing your name on Google+ and if you are to edit your name now, be extra careful about it. Because you will be flagged for deletion if Google finds something suspicious about your name. Nothing scary just be yourself. Be the real you.

So Good Luck and All the Best. Please do comment if you were one of the people to get your account suspended! Perhaps we can help.
