When we polled for favorite features few months ago, Google+ chat surprisingly came as one of the most popular features in Google+.
With chat being more important, more features were added to chat and more ways to connect through the chat feature.
We’ve compiled a shortlist of new features
- Now chat with anyone on Google+ by typing their name in chat section of Google+ (with one condition, that person must have you in one of their circles [mutual circles]. previously only if you know their email address, add and confirm you’ll be able to chat)
- Google+ chat list will show only users you had recent conversations with instead of showing all the contacts (Type a name in the search within chat to talk to a person)
- When both of you have in each others circle, you’ll be to chat across other google products like Gmail, Google+, Orkut and GTalk client
