We love to update Social Network Status on the go and Mobile devices are mostly used to do that.

Google Plus Social network was unveiled recently and here we will discuss how can you update Google Plus Status via SMS Text.

  2. Press on Send Verification Code by SMS and you will receive Message from Google with Verification code.

    Google Plus SMS Status

By default, the post is shared with public but you can Share Google+ Post with specific circle or person. Here’s how:

Use the shortcuts below to share your posts with specific people or circles:

@[circle name]
To share with a specific circle, append your post with @[circle name]. For example: “Catch you at McDonalds @CollegeFriends“.

To share with everyone in your extended circles, append your post with @extended. For example: “Any Veg restaurant recommendations? @extended”.

To share your post publicly, append your post with @public. Public posts are viewable by anyone on the web. For example: “Any Veg restaurant recommendations? @public”.

SMS Notifications for Google+ Mentions, Photo Tag or Comment

Just below the form where you entered Mobile Number and Verification Code, there is a list to customize which Notification to be sent as SMS and Email. Check mark in front of those options to enable or disable Google+ SMS Notifications.

Google+ SMS Post Rates

Phone Number where you are sending SMS is not a premium one so Standard SMS rates apply. In case you have Free SMS Pack then, Google Plus Status can be updated via SMS for Free.

    Yeah! Some features exclusively started for India.
    Actually, there are no such Data connection problems in other countries so, India was given preference in SMS feature 😛
