In a recent post on Google’s blog site, Bradley Horowitz, the VP of Sharing, Photos, Streams, posted about the new changes that Google will implement in the upcoming months. All these changes are focused mainly on YouTube, Google+ usage experience.
Previously, the social media platform of Google was a mandatory requirement in order to access Google products like YouTube, but with the latest announcement, Google confirms that now, users don’t require Google+ accounts in order to comment, share on YouTube or any other product. Now, all of the Google products can be accessed using the single normal Google account. The original words from Google are as follows:
“People have told us that accessing all of their Google stuff with one account makes life a whole lot easier. But we’ve also heard that it doesn’t make sense for your Google+ profile to be your identity in all the other Google products you use.”
So, in upcoming months, a single Google account will be all you require in order to share content, communicate with people, creating a YouTube channel across Google. With this effect, your Google account will not be searchable or follow able unlike Google+ profiles and those who already have Google+ accounts and don’t want to use them, they can remove those profiles.
In addition to all this, Google will also try to improve Google+ experience by adding some features to it like Google+ collections, through which people can share and enjoy posts organized related to topic categories. They will also add location sharing into hangouts and other apps, where it really needed.
With such changes Google is making its step towards keeping everything in its right place. This will however, may affect Google+ in negative ways but now people will not get forced to make their appearance on this social media platform as by some people it was highly criticized. So, Google is implementing good changes for its users and creating a fan base again.
