Google+ comes to Gmail. I don't see this myself yet, so can't say if it's good or bad. I don't use Gmail through the web anyway, so it's unlikely to bother me. An archive of notifications might be good. Sure wish Google+ just developed a better way of direct messages like Twitter, though.

- So has anyone confirmed if this mail integration also works for those reading gmail via IMAP etc.? It looks to me that this isn't the case and that it's more a special-case handling for the gmail web interface only. If that is the case, it seems little overkill.
However.. if this gmail experience is there to allow subscribed threads appear as email threads. then it might be very handy to approach it that way. I spend most of my time reading posts on G+ and their comments.. I will comment myself if I have anything to contribute. But the contribution volume is much less than what I read. Maybe that is what Google have in mind here.. that posts you're actively involved in act like email threads.May 10, 2012
- Doubt that is part of IMAP standard ;)May 10, 2012

- : It is indeed regrettable, that Google is not giving out the migration tool sooner. I have seen promising it in a post. I wonder how long this is going to take?!!!
: Its also possible that this feature request is less in demand as compared to other requests, though does give updates every week, they take their time in obvious features. some times I have to wonder why they don't give the obvious things already.
Replying to a g+ post is great for people who have gmail notifications set up already. :)May 12, 2012
- : I have to whole-heartedly disagree with the title you have given to this article. In no way g+ is invading gmail.
In your g+ settings, you can choose to receive or not to receive notifications from g+. This is not invasive. g+ has only made it easier for people who have gmail notifications to do things better and faster. Previously I had to click & go to a g+ page to comment on a post. Now I can do it from my inbox, saving lots of time.
Also when I send to a friend's inbox, who doesn't know about g+ notification box at top, they can full see the post and interact with it instead of going to another page. This is such a useful feature. I don't see any point in calling this invasive.
I hope you update the article.
As , has clearly mentioned , getting notifications has been there as soon as g+ launched, but you always had the option to turn it off. and quite a few have done that.
And I agree with , they have made this feature fully interactive. And this a wonderful thing for us.May 12, 2012
- : I feel this is only for the web version.
But you can use a filter to archive your g+ posts, as soon as you receive them and keep them away, right?
How is Twitter's Direct messaging better to g+?
I'm not using twitter, but I set g+ to ping me if someone mentions me and send it to my inbox. I never miss any mentions for my name or if someone comments on my post.
If you have time, can you elaborate on this? :)May 12, 2012
