Google has set their plan to integrating everything with its social network Google+. The latest one that is being added to this list is the Android apps. The new feature now allows users to share links of Android apps through Google+ circles itself. Friends in Google+ Circles can also install the app directly from the Google+ stream.
How this work is quite interesting. Once the user paste the URL of a particular app as a status message, an install or buy button will be then automatically inserted by Google+. Once user clicks on the ‘install’ button, users will be then directed towards ‘Google Play’ page of that app automatically by Google. Users will then have to choose a compatible android device on which app has to be installed.
Once the device is selected, the app will be pushed towards the specific device. The new feature now eliminates the need for user to navigate towards Google Play Store page for downloading the apps being recommended by Friends within Google+ Circles. The new feature allows them to download the recommended apps of their Friends without leaving the Google+ Page. More than that, the new feature provides users with a detailed picture on the new and refreshing apps that is being recommended by friends within circles.
The new feature is anyway a welcome addition to Google+ users and also the brands who were wishing to share their new apps whenever a new title or app updates is being released. The new copy paste URL method is considered to be announced as part of Google’s effort to make things easier for its users. Most of the brands consider it as a new marketing strategy for raising the popularity of their apps or games.
