Google+ Sign-In App Activities in Google SERPs – Now Download Google Fonts to Desktop

Google now aggregates app activity in to the Google search results making it easier for users to see what in-app content fellow users find interesting for a searched app.

Now, when a users search for a site or app on Google.com and “if that app has integrated with Google+ Sign-In app activities,” you’ll see popular and aggregate user activity to the right of search results, informs Google.

“Searching for Fandango, for example, will show the top movies among Google users. And when you click on a movie, you’ll go directly to its page on Fandango,” google explains.

Google starting with a limited number of music and movie apps is rolling out this feature in desktop Search over the next few weeks.

In other Google news, starting today, users can download Google Fonts for offline access on their desktop.

With the fonts installed locally, browsing websites that use web fonts will be faster, since your browser won’t have to spend time fetching font data.

“We’ve made all of the fonts from the Google Fonts directory available in “SkyFonts,” a tool from Monotype that allows you to install and sync fonts from the web onto your Windows or Mac OS X devices,” informs Google developers team.

“”SkyFonts” automatically updates the fonts installed on your system whenever they are updated on Google Fonts – for example, when new characters are added – ensuring you always have the latest fonts to work with,” explains the team.

If you’d rather download the source files to edit the font data directly, you can always do so from the project at Google Code.
