Post from any feed to Google+ (via email-to-SMS) using ifttt.com/recipes/2136

Update: Great News! Google expanded to 43 countries their Google+ SMS features, find the list of countries at goo.gl/A7U7v .

Please add and activate your Google Voice number at goo.gl/SN1xc before proceeding.

Note 1: For India G+ers, please substitute 33669 (United States) below for 9222222222 (India). Find the numbers for the additional 41 countries at goo.gl/A7U7v

Note 2: The #ifttt servers won't post instantly to Google+, wait times can range from 1-15 mins.

Note 3: If you wanna avoid G+ SMS replies simply "block" the number in your Google Voice. You'll still be able to send messages to the number.

Steps:
1) Make sure the Text Forwarding is set in your Google Voice, GV, settings. We are looking for the special email address you get back from Google+ SMS., e.g., {yourGVnumber}.33669.{special_characters_here}@txt.voice.google.com

Note: From +Mike Elgan's article, "Your secret email address should look something like this: 16463548278.33669.dPdcjkRaVz@txt.voice.google.com"

2) Send a test SMS, from your GV number, to 33669. You'll get a SMS back with "Google+: Did not understand the request."

3) Go to gmail and record the email address from the message you got in Step 2., e.g., {yourGVnumber}.33669.{special_characters_here}@txt.voice.google.com

4) Go to Google+ settings and add your Google Voice number as your phone.

5) Add the email from Step 3 to the "To address" field.

6) (Optional) Add additional options from http://goo.gl/ZqsFQ to the "Body" field.
