After twelve weeks of field trials, Google+ announced early yesterday that it is now [publicly] available.
The news came at 9:00 AM PST on Tuesday in a blog post on Google’s official blog. Open signups were among the nine new Google+ features that were unveiled:
“For the past 12 weeks we’ve been in field trial, and during that time we’ve listened and learned a great deal. We’re nowhere near done, but with the improvements we’ve made so far we’re ready to move from field trial to beta, and introduce our 100th feature; open signups. This way anyone can visit, join the project and connect with the people they care about.” (Vic Gundotra, Google Senior Vice President of Engineering)
The other new features released yesterday are:

  • Hangouts on your phone
  • Hangouts on air
  • Hangouts with extras (which includes four unique releases – screensharing, sketchpad, google docs, and named hangouts)
  • Google+ search
  • And, of course, public access – dubbed +Everyone (which I love)

Google+ now boasts 100 unique features that will be rolled out globally today. You can read the whole post on Google’s blog here.
