Google Plus Desktop App with GClient


Previously we told you about G+ notifier desktop that helps you with desktop notifications for you Google plus profile. It shows the unread Google plus notification in your desktop taskbar with a small red color icon. Now with some advanced functionality, here we have desktop client for Google plus. You don’t have to open the browser to access your Google plus account, just use this desktop client to open and use your Google plus account.

GClient is a free desktop client for Google Plus. It completely integrates into the windows tray. Clicking on it will display a handy window showing your latest Google+ activities. This window allows you to post messages and to follow the activity of your circles.

As I told in the previous post, the G+ Notifier uses a mobile version of Google plus as their desktop interface tool, similarly GClient also tries out Google plus mobile interface as their desktop interface. So its like how you browse your Google plus on mobile interface. Once you’ve downloaded the Gclient for desktop, install it. It requires .Net Framework 4.0, if you don’t have it installed in your PC, then don’t worry, it automatically installs the .net framework first and then installs Gclient app.

Once you’ve installed, open the Gclient from the desktop shortcut and login with your Google credentials. You can see your stream posts displaying. You can update your Google plus status message from desktop, When you click on the Home button, you can get access to Stream, Photos, Circles, Profile, Notifications etc.

You can also view photos in your stream using the GClient (which actually runs a mobile interface framework), also you can view profiles of your friends and people in your contacts. You can create new circle and manage the existing circles. Below are few screenshots from GClient app :
