Google Announces Event for Tomorrow Morning…Only Google+ Related

Screen Shot 2013-10-28 at 12.24.09 PM

I think we now know why Vic Gundotra couldn’t sleep last night. Tomorrow, at 9:30AM Pacific, the Google+ team will hold a live event to discuss “a few updates.” That’s fun and all, especially since we’ve grown more and more attached to G+, but it’s not exactly what we were hoping for. Unless it involves Hangouts and Google Voice. Or comes on the heels of the big Android announcement.

Still interested in why he pinged Sundar Pichai last night. Maybe there is more? OK, I’m hypebeasting now. Move along.

Cheers Matt, Dan and Derrick!

    Maybe they should have used facebook (sarcasm) because right now the event has been deleted, and Vic’s G+ page doesn’t even load…lol

  • Pedro

    Uhm, Nexus 4 +1 = Nexus 5.

  • Dave

    I’ll still be excited if it involved SMS support for hangouts.

  • It would be nice if G+ finally gained the ability to change the audience of a previous post. Right now you have to delete and then repost, which is ridiculous.

  • Richard

    OMG is google driving me crazy with these NO NEXUS 5 announcemnets. GIVE US THE PHONE ALREADY!!!!!!!

  • c_topher_v

    Has anyone read anything if SMS/Hangouts integration will work on 4.1 or 4.3?

  • joejoe5709

    At this event I guarantee they’ll give us a date for the Nexus event. No doubt.

  • David_ATL

    wouldn’t it be great if they did the G+ event tomorrow and ended it by saying, “…AND ONE MORE THING…” and then proceeded with kIT kAT and N5 love for everyone!!

  • Cory Wilson

    Google is straight trolling us now. I mean really, a “night out with google play”, who wouldn’t of thought that wasn’t a nexus/android event, and now another event? We know all the leakes were intentional, Google’s building hype, but its getting old.

  • trwb

    Android Authority has pictures taken with Nexus 5 in a post

  • a.d.AM

    I will burn this place to the ground…….

  • John Motschenbacher

    I bet the +1 means Nov 1st! Yay Nov 1st!!!

  • Kevin

    they dont need to announce an announcement unless it’s hangouts or N5 related.

  • Chris Hughes

    It be hilarious if they handed out Nexus 5 at the even in Kit Kat wrappers. Like just have them in a bowl somewhere…

  • jbdan

    I’m waiting for the tag “Updated: it’s not ‘only’ Google+ related”!!


    best regards, peter

    • jbdan

      I plan to sell my S4 but after I test the Nexus waters. My gnex with vzw left me with recurring nightmares…

  • Gnex

    We are getting scroogled.

  • T4rd
  • trwb

    Google+… Really… Who gets excited about Google+?

    • NexusMan


      • trwb

        I love how Google tries to force me to use G+ through my Youtube profile and Google Play reviews

        • Daeshaun Griffiths

          They aren’t forcing it. Why have multiple logins for 1 companies services? I think they are just cleaning it up by linking it all together.

    • jbdan

      I use it everyday. I’m not a FB’r and share my son with his grand parents who are a distance away. Plus I dig the photo backup (and for the record I didn’t downvote you) 😀

      • trwb

        I like the Google+ interface. It has some potential. I would like it more I guess if anyone I new used it. Thanks for not down voting me. Any criticism of Google gets a down vote immediately on this site.

        • Pedro

          I just gave you the downvote for ‘anyone I new’.

          • trwb

            Good catch. That deserves a downvote.

    • Based on your vote downs, about 6 of us.

  • Gustavo

    I count 28 bubbles in the coffee. Release date confirmed, it is today.

    • Skittlez

      thats November 28th

  • ddevito

    I love Google as much as anyone…


    • Pedro

      They only sucked in the past, since they haven’t had a product launch recently.

      Wait until you have to hit the Google Play Buy button this week/month before you say they suck at launches.

  • Morbid138

    • master94

      Really starting to feel like Google will announce events for anything but the NEXUS 5 now. They must love watching us beg.

      • Just_Some_Nobody

        I don’t see any begging. Whole lot of whining. But no begging.

        • Piyush

          They’re actually all begging. Begging in the form of whining :).

  • Derek L.

    It is Derek, but thank you for including me finally! :p

    Getting so close I can taste it. Cases ordered

  • Teng Taing

    HAHAHHAHAHAHA best troll ever….
    Google 10/10 trolling

  • Andy Stetson

    X1 is what that really says, codename for the Nexus Smartwatch!!! the X just happened to rotate to look like a +.

  • Seriously, Tim-O and Kellex… You guys have GOT to drop “hypebeast” from your vocabular! I’m begging you! lol

    • Ian Smith

      most annoying thing since fackwors, whatever the hell that is

      • Chris

        You have to understand the joke for it to be funny

        • Ian Smith

          go ahead and enlighten us

          • starnovsky
          • Chris

            I was gonna link you but starnovsky already did. Basically, read through that post and then there is a captcha that says “fackwors”. Somehow one person just starting using “THAT”S FACKWORS” instead of saying “that’s crazy” or insane or whatever. And it’s sort of like an inside joke. Only we know it and get it, and when we read it it’s hilarious for some unknown reason. It is starting to get a little stale now, but luckily I don’t see it as often anymore.

          • Ian Smith

            thank you. i hate it, but thank you.

      • Skittlez

        what? you mean yolo or swag is less-annoying?

  • That’s “+” looks like an “x.” Confirmed. lol

    • Ryan Stewart

      Its confirmed. Sources say tomorrow morning they are launching Skynet from the secret Google barges. Now that they know where 75% of us are at because of our phones they can finally bring about the cleansing.

      • ToddAwesome

        Is that what those secret barges are Google supposedly has? I knew it!

        • Ryan Stewart

          Obviously Portland, ME and San Francisco are going down first.

          • michael arazan

            Portland?! Kellex Run!!!!

      • trixnkix637

        I honestly would not be surprised if Google is what SkyNet began as. Makes sense if you think about it long enough from a fantasy standpoint. Apple of course would side with the human resistance hence why their weapons are inferior to SkyNet’s machines. /s

      • Droid 1967

        no it was delayed it appears apple has a patent on ballons

        • Ryan Stewart

          Probably just floating command centers for when they take over our drones like that last Call of Duty game.

  • grumpyfuzz

    Maybe at the end they’ll announce an event on Halloween for the Nexus 5? (HOPEFUL)

  • Mon

    Im tired of this. I need a table…

      as Joyce explained I am in shock that someone can get paid $4001
      in 4 weeks on the internet. have you read this web site

  • Hatyrei

    i hope they get nightmares tonight for not holding any press event or announcement TODAY for THE Nexus 5 & kIT kAT!

  • Tim242

    They have gone past ridiculous. You nexus freaks deserve this : /

    • Ian Smith

      i’m lapping it up

    • ToddAwesome

      They’ve gone to ludicrous speed?!?!?!?

      • trixnkix637

        Is that a Spaceballs reference? You win them all! Good is dumb.

    • Pedro

      Says most people on VZW…

      – posted from my Nexus 4

      • Tim242

        I can have any phone I want, on any carrier. I tried the Nexus 4 out on both T-Mobile and at&t. It is a terrible phone, glass back, awful camera, touch screen response issues…sit down.

  • Eric

    There is no way it’s only Google+ related…

    • David_ATL

      Agree there has to be more to it that just G+

      • David_ATL

        *than just G+

  • Zachary

    “+” looks like (stands for) 11… which is november… November 1st? HYPERBEAST

  • htowngtr

    So…. likely even for N7 and 4.4 after that

  • Ryan B

    An announcement should be on the inside of a kit kat wrapper if they wanted to make some money from me right now.

  • Shamu

    You have got to be kidding me!

  • droidrazredge

    Google stop messing with my mind with all these little events I think are related to the phone but are actually related to each service you have! I’m starting to go crazy. I can’t take it anymore, just give me a break already , and break me off a piece of that Nexus 5 Kit Kat Bar.

  • JRomeo

    So when the most anticipated and biggest Google announcement of the year is imminent…. Google decides to throw little events here and there… to throw us off…. to cause us to go crazy in wonder for when the announcement for the event which really matters will be mentioned!

  • Guest

    About FRIGGIN’ time!!!

    Of course, now we have to wait for the actual event. 🙁

  • Brendan Owens

    Just give me a Kit Kat Google!

  • markgbe

    he he

  • Mike Hilal

    Trolling the nexus 5 crew

  • Zach B.

    You know folks at Google are loving every minute of this.

    • Ian Smith

  • Dan

    Oh come on google. Enough is enough!

  • Eddie R

    clearly that render is phootshopped.

    • Eric


      • Eddie R

  • moelsen8

    oh they’re trolling now..

    • palomosan

      You mean trolling us.

  • HotRodJohnson

    Wasn’t there suppose to be a Google Play event last week?

    • Zach B.

      There was. It was a meet and greet with a random concert. Snoozefest.

  • Ian Smith

    love it
