How To Enable Google+ For Google Apps

Google Apps users now have the option to play with circles. Google+ is now available to people who use Google Apps at college, at work or at home. These users will have the same set of features that are available to every Google+ user.

In addition to sharing publicly or with your circles, you’ll have the option to share with everyone in your organization, even if you haven’t all of those people to a circle.

Here is the detailed procedure to enable Google+ in your organization. Please note that Google+ requires Picasa web albums, Google Talk services to be ON.

 

  • Log in to your Google Apps administrative control panel. The URL looks something similar to https://www.google.com/a/cpanel/primary-domain-name, where primary-domain-name is the domain name you used to sign up for Google Apps.
