What is Google Buzz?

Posted on 11 February 2010

Recently, Google announced about the launch of Google Buzz, which is basically a semantic approach to social status updates that live inside Gmail. A number of features have been added with Buzz, but what seems really exciting is what Buzz can do in your pocket.

If you go to http://buzz.google.com from your iPhone or Android phone, you’ll be taken to a WebKit- optimized interface in order to use and connect with Google Buzz.

Then, after logging in to your Google account, you’ll be taken directly to the main Buzz screen. Here you can see Buzz from the people you follow and from nearby locations, view your own posts, and find other people.

The good thing is that the web based interface blends in perfectly with the Gmail optimized webpages that iPhone users are familiarized with.

Buzz’s five key features includes:

  • Automatic friends lists, friends are added automatically who you have emailed on Gmail.
  • “Rich fast sharing” combines sources like Picasa and Twitter into a single feed, and it includes full-sized photo browsing
  • Public and private sharing
  • Inbox integration, instead of keeping you updated with emails like Facebook does, Buzz features emails that update dynamically with all Buzz thread content.
  • Recommended Buzz, which puts friend-of-friend content into your stream, even if you’re not acquainted.

Google Buzz has been made available now and should come up in your google account as a new tab.
