Now Available via Gmail and Google Plus: First Working Example of Gmail/Google+ Integration

Now Available: “A first, tiny step: view recent Google+ posts in the Gmail people widget!”

That’s what Mark Striebeck, the person in charge of developing Gmail’s front-end reports in a new post.

He writes:

You can now see the most recent Google+ post that the sender of the email shared with you in the Gmail people widget.

The “people widget” is located on the far right side of Gmail message, near the top of the page. If a person’s profile pic is available that’s part of the Gmail people widget.

To make it even easier to find where (if available) the new info is found, Stiebeck has  included a screenshot is his post.

Strieback also includes the “code name of the project” and a few other details in the remainder of his announcement.

He concludes by saying, “Again, this is just the first launch – look out for more!”
