Google launches Buzz app for Android phones
Google says Buzz is now available from the Android Market for all smartphones running Android 1.6 and above.
After a successful launch of the Google Buzz for mobile web application, Google today announced that the new Buzz widget is now available on the Android Market.
Google’s Buzz application acts like an extension of the Google Chat found in Gmail, allowing users to update and comment on each other’s statuses, post images, videos and links, and add a location tag to show where they were when they posted. The Buzz widget is currently only available in English, although Google say they are planning releases in multiple languages for the near future.
Google Buzz came under criticism last month for its overly complex privacy settings and by default allowing people to track users’ “most contacted” contacts. Google has since resolved the issue, although whether the new widget will allow it to compete with services like Twitter and Facebook remains to be seen.
