Google Adds Meme Generator & Hashtag Auto Complete To Google+
Today Google announced the addition of two new features to Google+. One of the features is quite helpful and time saving, the other … not so much.
The first item coming to Google + is an auto-complete feature for hashtags. This will allow popular hashtags to appear when a user enters the ‘#’ symbol.. This looks quite similar to auto-complete for search, and can be seen in the included video clip.
The second feature that is being added is a built in meme generator for user photos. In case you have been living under a digital rock, a meme is a viral concept (usually silly) that users adopt across the internet. Most memes coming in picture form, and Google+ is now looking to capitalize on this.
In order to create a meme, a user must simply add a photo to Google+, clicking “add text” and save. This could replace the existing meme generators, or simply annoy all the Google+ visitors with an influx of meme related content.
Here is a close up of the hashtag auto-complete:
