After being invitation-only for nearly three months, Google+ is now available to anyone who is interested to check it out.
The official Google company (Vic Gundotra) wrote, “We’re ready to move from field trial to beta, and introduce our 100th feature: open signups.”
The news also comes with significant improvements to Google+ Hangouts, including the ability to use them on Android devices. It also includes search, which is a hybrid of content shared on Google+ and results from around the web.
Google+ invites were in big demand upon its initial launch in July, and attracted 25 million testers in the first couple of months.
Facebook has initiated a number of features to counter what were initial differentiating points of Google+. Facebook redesigned Friend Lists and made updates to its News Feed, both of which bring Google+ Circles-like functionality to the site.
