After writing about how Google Plus’ Huddle has the same name as Huddle, the project management tool, I’ve been getting a lot of visits to this site from people searching for more information about Google Plus Huddle. So I’m going to veer a bit off topic and explain what Google Plus Huddle is and how to use it. Also, as a sidenote, let me know if you want a Google Plus invite in the comments, and I’ll be happy to send you one.
Huddle is the group texting part of Google Plus, Google’s latest attempt at social networking. Since it’s a texting app, you can only access it by downloading the Google Plus Android app on your Android phone. Here is Google’s video explaining Huddle:
After downloading the Google Plus Android app, you can follow the following simple steps to create a Huddle:
- Click on the “Huddle” icon
- Click on the “start a new huddle” icon in the top right corner of the screen (where the arrow is pointing)
- Type in the name, email, or circle of people you want to “Huddle” with
- Type in a message to your friends
- Click Send
If you have an iPhone, you can’t access Google Plus Huddle just yet. You’ll need to wait until Google possibly releases an iPhone app.
So you might as well get an Android. And just as a bonus, by far the coolest feature on Google Plus is Instant Upload of photos. When you take a photo, it just uploads into your Google Plus account magically!
Are you on Google Plus? What do you think of it so far?
