Google integrates YouTube into Google+

Google announced the integration of YouTube into Google+.

Already, users are able to share YouTube videos on Google+ right in YouTube, however, the functionality is now integrated right in Google+. Google+ users will now see a small YouTube tab at the right hand side of their screen now when logged in just like the following.

It's no secret that YouTube is filled with tons of great content (from inspiring speeches to music videos to honey badgers). We wanted to bring YouTube directly into Google+—as well as make it easier to watch and share your favorites—so we're launching a YouTube "slider" in the stream.

How does 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)

In the video playlist, you can +1 a video you like or share it with your circles. Even if the video playlist window is minimized it is still possible to pause a video or skip to the next video directly from Google+.
