Google VP announces partnership with Flipboard
Google’s vice-president of product management Bradley Horowitz has announced at Le Web’12 that the company has partnered with Flipboard and that Google+ integration in the app will be coming soon.
Starting the revelations early – ahead of Google I/O, Google’s developer conference on 27 June – Horowitz announced the new alliance with the tablet news app just this morning.
“It works like it should,” said Horowitz, “Flipboard has done an amazing job.”
Google+ integration will come through Google’s new Google+ APIs, allowing Flipboard users to access posts, photos, video and other information from Google+ while staying in the Flipboard stream.
Speaking at the London event, Horowitz also announced that Google’s social network will never include advertising – a bold statement that, if it holds true, will be a defining characteristic of Google+, setting it apart from ad-focused Facebook.
