It’s now easier for people without smartphones or computers to sign up for Gmail and Google+. In a Google Plus update, Google’s Mohamed Fouad writes:

It’s very easy for anyone to create a Google+ profile. All you have to do is go to a computer and sign up. You can even sign up from your Android or iPhone, but what if you’re a new user and don’t have easy access to either a computer or an expensive smartphone? This is the case for hundreds of millions of people around the world.

Today, we’re rolling out a feature that allows users to create a Gmail account and sign up for Google+ from a basic feature phone. All you have to do is visit plus.google.com from your basic phone and click “Create an account now”. Now users will be able to sign up using almost any phone with a data plan.

Google on feature phones

Last month Google rolled out improvements to Google+ for BlackBerry, Nokia and Windows Mobile devices, including: suggested people, add people to circles and create a circle.

It’s interesting that Google+ continues to improve on feature phone features, as Facebook is doing so as well. In fact, they just shut down Snaptu, which they acquired for feature phone apps. That team is now working on “Facebook For Every Phone,” Facebook’s mobile version for feature phones.
