Here is how Google plans on replacing Google +



Today, Google unveiled what will be offered to G Suite users in its place: Currents. Now that Google+ is history, the new app allows for meaningful discussions connecting users to employers in an organization. The new app Currents has a  new feel and a better look compared to Google+, it has been designed to allow users to post contents and tag it. Post for top executives in an organization can be prioritized to make sure employees see it.


It's clear Google+ could not compete with other social media platforms and had to be shut down by Google earlier this year.  Currents is launching in beta, and Google says G Suite companies can request access to the program starting now. Google+ posts will automatically be transferred over to Currents.  Google has actually considered changing 'Currents' as it appeared in a magazine app that was a forerunner to Google Play NewsStand. This is also due to replace Google News later in the future.



I hope Currents sought to replicate the way people interact offline more closely than is the case in other social networking services, such as Facebook and Twitter.
