Google Plus finally informs you of your friend’s birthdays

Google has finally borrowed a popular feature from Facebook and added it to their Google+ platform.

Google+ users would now get alerts about the birthdays of people in their circles. These alerts are now appearing on Google.com! Interestingly, Google is not showing these updates on Google Plus right now. A lot of people do not even visit Google.com these days because of search toolbars and similar features in various browsers. Google Chrome for example lets you search from the omnibar itself.

Google shows a popup with the names of people with an option to wish them a happy birthday.

This of course only works if your contacts have enabled the option in their settings to reveal their birthday to you.

Birthday alerts and wishes is a popular feature on Facebook and it is good to see it arriving on Google Plus as well.
