You know how when you wish to sign into a new service (on an app or even on the web), you can use your Facebook credentials? Well, Google has just announced a brand new service that is very similar to that called “Google+ Sign-in” aka “application sign-in”. Using your existing account you use for your Google services such as Gmail or YouTube, you can sign into third-party apps and easily manage all of them, and even share and interact with your friends on your Google+ page.
Unlike linking apps with Facebook, Google+ Sign-in goes beyond from letting you share your app activities. You can select what you want to share and who you wish to share with, and your circle can even interact with the shared items, i.e. if you share a radio program from TuneIn Radio, there will be a listen button right in the post for your them to listen to.

The service is already available on quite a number of apps such as Shazam, Flixter and Fancy, Google has already notified developers about the new feature so they can adopt it as quickly as possible. It is available for both iOS and Android apps but Android users might discover a brand new app on your list called “Google Settings” so you can easily manage the apps right from the comfort of your device.
