Google shut down its social networking service, Google Plus, in April last year, after a series of serious data breaches and a low total number of active users. Although no longer open to the public, the service remains operationally maintained as an internal means of communication for some organizations and some G Suite users.
The service, which changed its name to Google Currents, was tested after the consumer version of Google Plus stopped supporting. Today, Currents is finally out of the testing phase and appears on Android and iOS platforms as a Google Plus alternative.
The new version replaces the waveform Currents logo with the Google Plus logo and incorporates Google’s Material Design design language. The new app retains a lot of Google Plus features, including “tags” and “streams, and so on.”
However, Currents also incorporates a number of new features and features, such as the ability to share content from Google Drive, to prioritize tasks assigned by company leaders. The interaction experience on the Page is similar to that of Google Plus, but provides better “content control and administrative privileges.” In addition, the existing plus.google.com URL will continue to work in the background and will be redirected to currents.google.com.
