Watch “A Morning With Google+” Live

YouTube Preview Image

At any moment, Google should begin their “A morning with Google+” event which is streamed live to the world on YouTube. We’d imagine we will see lots of Google+ talk, new features, both web and app related, and probably not much else. This doesn’t exactly scream “Nexus event!” to us. One report already suggests that we’ll see Auto Awesome for videos, a feature that has been available to photos on G+ for some time. Other than that, the rest is not confirmed.

There is apparently some sort of power outage at the Google-plex this morning, so the event hasn’t begun yet. It should start soon.

  • Joshua Bailey

    Some really nice photo processing software. Love that HDR filter. Well done so far.

  • Hatyrei

    disappointed no NEXUS 5 :(

  • Dale

    LOL Once the event started I had a feeling there would be no Nexus 5/KitKat announcement. This blows.

  • Dusty

    is it just me or is “Matt” using a macbook pro? ironic =P

    • jbdan

      He is !

    • michael arazan

      Can just see tim cook using a chromebook on stage at an io7 event

  • David Gilson

    There may be no Nexus but this presentation is pretty awesome. These features are impressive. Crowd seems a little dull though

    • jbdan

      Definitely dull, they were hoping for that elusive N5 hint/tip I would think. I agree, awesome new features and photography editing capabilities

    • michael arazan

      Thought the crowd was going to get up and leave for minute, when they realized that they kept talking about G+.

      I went to a NIN concert in 95 opening for David Bowie, and after NIN played the entire amphitheater just left, out of thousands less than 100 people stayed to watch Bowie, thought that was going to happen at G+ event

  • Jeremy Alajajian

    OUCH. “This is not some LITTLE local client”

  • morgan boyle

    TAKE IT FURTHER VIC!!!!!

    • jbdan

      “Let me blow your mind, for a moment”

  • STEV3

    Someone tell Vic its 20 times not 20 X.

  • MikeSaver

    how does auto awesome work?

    • CHRIS42060

      Magic

    • jbdan

      Are you watching the live feed? They explain it well

    • Col_Angus

      Witchcraft happens.

  • jbdan

    These photography fx are pretty extensive they’re really going after it

  • OneForTheGoodDays

    Been using Snapseed exclusively for a year now…. I love what it does to photos; especially when you’re dealing with a kick-a$$ camera.

    The more and more I play with Google +, the more I use it. I am actually on Google+ now more than Facebook. Problem is – most of my friends are on Facebook and haven’t even attempted Google+. These new utilities may help.

    • Jeremy Alajajian

      Completely agree. Only reason I am still on FB is friends and family don’t use G+

    • ToddAwesome

      Agree, but it will take a while.

    • Cliff Wynne

      isnt it a good thing they arent on G+ ;)

    • Droidzilla

      I love Google+; can’t understand how anyone who’s really used it is against it.

  • OneForTheGoodDays

    “Google Plus is the best thing to happen to photos since film was created” – Ansel Adams

    • Rick Lopez

      Ansel Adams died in 1984

      • OneForTheGoodDays

        That was the point… it’s called a joke. It’s a thing we do here.

  • STEV3

    I feel like all of this is Deja Vu. For the pictures at least. Didn’t they release most of this already? Or atleast mention all of this already. Someone back me up please?

    • ToddAwesome

      yes, at I/O

      • STEV3

        Okay thanks I thought I was going crazy. Appreciate it!

  • droidftw

    I feel like I’ve seen most of this already (at IO).

    • ToddAwesome

      hey, stop stealing my material! /s

  • ToddAwesome

    Pretty sure I’ve seen this “highlights” sales pitch before.

  • JRUIV

    Chromecast doesn’t support live feeds…lame

    • Steve B

      Seriously lame

  • OneForTheGoodDays

    I feel a creepy feature coming on.

    • Cliff Wynne

      indeed

    • MichaelFranz

      There it is, google knows who you love….loved ones are not safe…

  • Clayton

    OMGO MGOM OMGOM OMG MOGM OMOGMOMGM OGM

    sms

  • Droidzilla

    Wow, he’s a horrid public speaker.

    • Nick Floria

      honestly he is a great speaker.

      • Droidzilla

        Really? He sounds like he’s talking to a group of 5 year olds. It’s very bad. I love Google (more than even most fanbois), but he’s pretty bad.

        • Nick Floria

          he is easy to understand and he is breaking down what he needs. Google has had an issue with some of their speakers not being that easy to understand. They don’t have hugo barra anymore so they that can speak. He does a good job.

        • sirmipsalot

          “he’s pretty bad” compared to what? Honestly, what are your expectations? He’s not awkward, he’s clear, and the talk flows coherently from topic to topic. That he doesn’t have the delivery of an entertainer does not make this a bad *tech* talk.

          • Droidzilla

            Not even as an entertainer; just as a speaker that doesn’t sound like he’s reading a story to a group of children. Yes, he’s not screwing anything up. That doesn’t make his speaking good.

          • sirmipsalot

            You’ve attended very, very few technical or sales talks, then. He’s not droning on and the talk is well put together. That his delivery is mildly sing-song-y does not make him “a horrid public speaker”.

    • ToddAwesome

      uh, wut?

    • Eddie R

      he has said “AMAZING” at least 2 dozen times. getting annoying.

  • AnotherAndroidKid

    Kellen can now mute Ron during apple rants.

    • Steve B

      YES!!!!

    He’s giving off a very Mr. Roger’s feel…

  • Jason Downing

    annnnnd. we’re live!

  • CHRIS42060

    With the power outage in Google they very well may be announcing the Nexus 5, since the preceding two have had some type of delay.

  • ninjawarren

    Power outage? Must be those damned quantum computers they built.

  • Shane Redman

    Just got turned into “Brunch with Google+”

  • sc0rch3d

    the only sad part about this phase of the game is that there’s only one step left http://i0.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/original/000/428/482/85b.jpg

    • JRomeo

      that’s not the sad part……… when the Nexus5 announcement is over, we will finally be HAPPY that we can finally order it….. that’s definitely not the sad part.

  • cns2007

    I’m beginning to think Google’s announcement events are cursed. Jobs’ death 2 years ago, Hurricane Sandy last year.

  • FrankBoston

    Fail

  • RickMLA

    Server errors on the Google+ page do not bode well for the Play Store when the phone finally goes on sale. I’m still scarred by the 4…
