Gmail Chat In Google Plus Profiles Is Disappointing

Google Plus has created a lot of hype but has actually failed on many areas. The Gmail Chat embedded into Google Plus is the one annoying feature that we are talking about. Google Plus is still not the full fledged social networking option as like Facebook. Well, i have always hated to compare the two. But yet, i’m tempted to. Facebook has a great chat option which is really very good despite criticisms.

Gmail Chat in Google Plus

Google Plus is just a combination of all your Google Products coming under a single profile. Be it the Gmail Chat, Picasa, The Notification bar, everything has a established product. Google Plus has to have a better chat option unlike the existing Google Talk Gadget. Embedding of your Gmail Chat in Google Plus doesn’t add to anything. Though its in a beta testing phase, i have found this chat thing the most annoying thing. I really don’t want to see people online on my Google Plus profile who are not in my circles but are in Gmail. Google, please hear me!! 🙂

    What a narrow thinking depth you have !!! You have written the review within 2 paragraph !!!
    You saying that Google+ is not full fledge social networking site, man its just a week old and you are expecting it to be like facebook !!!
    This is your experience ??? This shows your limited knowledge.

    Hi Saurabh,
    Actually this isn’t a review! This was just my opinion expressing my disappointment of that chat option 🙂
    Yes, Google Plus is just two weeks old. I didn’t expect it to be like Facebook. But Except for Hangouts, it really doesn’t bring anything new to the table.
    I know Google Plus has a different purpose all together. But just a thought to Google to build an exclusive chat for Google Plus Profiles. Nothing Else.
    Thanks for your comments 🙂

    Hi Praveen,
    Thanks for the reply. I really could not understand why you are not liking chat option? First of all Google+ is a product, one out of many products by Google. Now for me its very convenient that to whom I chat regularly or even once, they are available in Google+ too for chatting. Now rather opening Gmail, I am getting the option here to chat with them!
    You are talking about only hangout as only unique feature. I tell you, I rarely upload pics or update something on Facebook just because I dont want to share those pics/comments to all who are my friends. Here Google+ has given me an excellent option to update only to those whom I want and not to the universe. This is the excellent feature according to me.
    Then the status bar is excellent too which is available in all Google products, what a convenient way to access Google+ from anywhere !
    Third is the huddle, which is currently only available for Android phone but gives me exceptional method to chat with my friends!
    You must be aware about Google Takeout which allows me to take all my data from google! This is sharp contrast to Facebook who is trying to block all ways to export even my friends email address!

    And this is just beginning, they are bringing changes every couple of days as per user’s feedback. They are concerned about privacy unlike facebook who just given anyone to tag me without my permission !
    I feel I have given some idea what Google+ has brought to table!
    Am I right ?
