Sharing of apps integrated into Google+
The NextWebWeb.com is highlighting an interesting feature that Google has silently added to Google+ timelines – the ability to present direct links to Android apps in timelines on Google+. It’s another step in Google Play’s integration into the search giant’s latest social networking venture.
(So many blogs to communicate the company’s message and Google is still silently introducing features?…)

To utilise the feature, simply paste the URL of the app you wish to share and Google+ will embed the Install/Buy button automatically…When you click the Install button, Google will automatically load the Google Play page for that app, but it will also display a prompt asking you to confirm if you wish to install the app and on which device you wish to use it.
The process is demonstrated in a series of screen grabs.
