Google+ now lets you share pictures effortlessly from Gmail

Google has just announced that G+ users will be able to seamlessly share pictures from their inbox. This change integrates the ever popular Gmail service right into Google+.  This particular feature is in response to the discussions Google has with users through the Gmail Google+ Page.

The feature, rolling out over the next few days, continues Google’s mission to integrate Google+ with all of their services, instantly making the likes of YouTube that much more social.

The Official Gmail Blog explains more

Lots of great images are sent through email, but sharing those photos with friends on Google+ used to require downloading the image from Gmail and re-uploading to your profile. Not anymore: Now you can share photo attachments with one quick click. The image(s) will be uploaded to your Google+ photos and be viewable only to the circles that you choose to share with.

Will this feature lead social gmail users to Google+ over Facebook? One single change shouldn’t tip the tides, but if Google can seamlessly connect all of their products together through Google+, it’s easy to imagine how fast it could grow. What services do you think Google+ will be integrated into next? Let us know in the comments!
