Google+ Integrate with YouTube and Chrome – Two New Google+ Chrome Extensions and New Google Toolbar for Internet Explorer Launched

Google just launched two new features to its social networking project Google+ that integrate with Google Plus with two more Google products: YouTube and Chrome.

YouTube
Google added a YouTube “slider” in the Google+ stream. “We’ll start playing a list of related videos in a new pop-up window, and if you move the pop-up elsewhere, you can still navigate your playlist from the slider,” said Vic Gundorta.

Here’s how it works:

  • “Mouse over the new YouTube icon at the top right of Google+
  • It’ll slide out and ask, “What would you like to play”?
  • Enter whatever you’re in the mood for (like a topic or a musical artist),” explains Gundotra
Google+ integrates with YouTube: Slider (closed), slider (open), pop-up playlist, slider (while playing)

Gundotra says, “Sharing YouTube videos with your circles also works, but there’s a nice little twist: the people you share with can open a related playlist directly from your post!

Also, Google begin including YouTube playlists in Google+ search results.
