Google announced today via its blog that Google+ is open to the public. No more special invites needed.
Anyone can sign up for Google+—no invitation required.
For the past 12 weeks we’ve been in field trial, and during that time we’ve listened and learned a great deal. We’re nowhere near done, but with the improvements we’ve made so far we’re ready to move from field trial to beta, and introduce our 100th feature: open signups. This way anyone can visit google.com/+, join the project and connect with the people they care about.
Google+ is still in beta but the service, which compares to Facebook, allows you to organize and communicate with friends in collected groups, called circles, and allows you to make group video calls and includes a game room, too.
