The new app, “launching first to beta, that enables people to have meaningful discussions and interactions across your organization, helping keep everyone in the know and giving leaders the opportunity to connect with their employees.”
Google notes that ‘posts from leadership can be given priority in the home stream, improving visibility across the organization to drive alignment.
The company says, along with all the basic and important features of Google+, Currents is also packed with a new look, feel and set of features that will enable users to post content faster.
G Suite users can request early access by sending an mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. They’ll also get all their Google+ data automatically transferred to Current once they enroll for the beta app.
This is not the first app called Google Current. Back in 2011, Google has launched a magazine app, that was the predecessor to Google Play Newsstand. This was later replaced by Google News.
