Google+ Now Integrated Into Chrome Web Store

Posted Jul 3, 2012

Google+ is now integrated into the Chrome Web Store.  Users signed into Google+ can see which Chrome extensions that their friends have recommended.  The integration appears in a section that is intended for social discovery of new apps, games, and add-ons called “From Your Circles.”

The Circles section shows small square thumbnails of the Chrome app’s logo and an indication about whether your friends voted up the app.  When you hover your mouse over the app’s thumbnail, a brief description and an “Add to Chrome” button will show up, which lets you quickly add the app to the Chrome web browser.
