Google is Making Waves
The number one search engine is at it again…and this time, they’re changing the way you communicate online! Google recently debuted Wave, a place where people can communicate and work together with formatted text, photos, videos, maps and more. This program allows users to organize events, share photos, enhance group projects, play interactive games, brainstorm, and go over things such as meeting notes, agendas, and more. This online tool provides people with real-time communication and collaboration.
What is a wave? The creator of Google Wave best describes a wave as equal parts conversation and document. This wave is shared, which means that any participant can reply anywhere in the message, edit the content and add participants at any point in the process. The ability to playback lets anyone rewind the wave to see who said what and when. A wave is live. With live transmission as you type, participants on a wave can have faster conversations, see edits and interact with extensions in real-time.
Google Wave is not available yet, but soon will be. You can request an invitation to Google Wave at https://services.google.com/fb/forms/wavesignup/. This new program is sure to take over offices and meetings as well as friends and family interactions. As the number one search engine, Google never disappoints!
