Google+ users can send you an email without even knowing your email address
Jan 11, 2014
Do not be surprised to receive emails from strangers!
Google has come up with a new feature that would enable Google+ users to send emails to the users in their network and that too, without an email address. Now, you can send emails to the people who are in your circles even if you do not have their email addresses.
Till now, Google+ users were able to message each other through Hangouts. The email functionality is introduced to provide a professional and personalized mode of interaction between Google+ users. The mailing feature helps to overcome the limitations of Hangout. With this new feature, Google hopes to make a positive impact on social media too.
The upside of this feature is that the users do not need to reveal their email addresses with the people in their circles. The mail address would remain private until the user responds to an email that is received via Google+. On the other hand, random strangers in your extended circles would be able to email you easily.
Google+ users would only have to type the name of the recipient in the “To” field for sending an email. The profile images would appear and the user can select the right recipient. Isn’t that amazing?
Let’s now wait to watch how it works!
