Google+ To Intergate YouTube and Chrome

On Thursday Google delivered two more Google+ features that integrate with two more Google products: YouTube and Chrome.

Google wanted to bring YouTube directly into Google+ and make it easier for users to watch and share their favorites.

For one, a YouTube slider tab has been added to the right-hand side of Google+. When you scroll your mouse over the YouTube tab, a search bar pops out asking "What would you like to play?" Entering any text will return YouTube video results, which pop up in a new window. If you move the pop-up elsewhere, you can still navigate your playlist from the slider. Sharing YouTube videos with your circles also works and the people you share with can open a related playlist directly from your post. Last but not least, Google is starting to include YouTube playlists in Google+ search results.

Google also released two new browser extensions for Google+.

One of the new extensions adds a +1 button beside the URL bar in Chrome. With this extension installed, a click of the button shares that website to a user's Google+ profile.

The other extension adds a Google+ notifications box to show up next to Chrome's URL bar, enabling users to be alerted of Google+ activity when they're logged into Google+ but not actually visiting a Google+ page. For all those who don't use Chrome, then they use Google Toolbar for Internet Explorer rolling out today.
