Google is hard at work integrating all its different services to provide users with one of the best online services How do we know this? Because tiny updates from Google are making our lives easier and they let us share much more content than what we used to to. For instance, did you know that you can share music tracks on Google+ (the Internet giant’s social network)? This update has been around for some time now, but it hasn’t gotten too much attention due to the fact that Google Music and Movies are not available all around the world.

An obvious service that should have received this update is Google Play, the place where all the Android goodies are available for proud Android smartphone and tablet users. Well, guess what? You can do this, thanks to the update that allows users to share their favorite apps on Google Plus. Now you can let people in on the best apps to use and to share your favorite games on the social network, so that other can get in on the fun.

How can you install Android apps from Google Plus?

Like all other Google services, it’s quite simple: just copy the link of the app from the Play Store and paste it in a comment or status update on Google+. When you do this, the app will appear and it even has an Install button, so you can install Android apps directly from Google+. By clicking the Install button, it will take you directly to the Play Market so you can add it to your collection.

This feature is really neat, especially for those who play online games with their friends, or who use apps like Instagram to share photos. Also, now, when you “+1” an app on the Play Store, it will appear on your Google+ page, but without the “Install” button. What benefits does this new feature give users? Well, if you hadn’t figured them by now, here is a quick recap:

  1. Easy sharing of apps with your Circles
  2. Letting people know what games you play and what apps you use
  3. See the latest updates of apps when Google sends notifications
  4. Share music and movies with 30 second previews


As you can see, Google is branching out and providing better features and better integration with their other services. A good way to go and we wish to see much more similar features in the future! Way to go Google!

I often wonder, where is technology heading? What do all of these advances mean for us and for our future? I sometimes miss the days when I didn’t know how to use a floppy disk, or how a computer CPU works, but now, until I find an answer to my questions, I’ll keep tracking these advances and show everything I find to those who share my interests.
