Google+ Support in People Hub
Integrate Google+ into Peoples Hub, same as you do Twitter/Facebook/LinkedIn/etc
Jacob Knight commented
I would like something like this. My school district provides all students and teachers with a google account. I wouldn't want them all to be in the people app because that would be tens of thousands of contacts. But I would like to be able to search my google contacts in the people app and maybe make some of my pre-existing contacts (friends) link to their school accounts.
Google+ is being discontinued, so this doesn't seem likely.
haha, this won't happen, not when evil Google won't release simple google apps on Windows Phone

Sunil, Google+ isn't owned by Microsoft but Facebook isn't as well...This is just another social network. And Microsoft doesn't have it's own.
Windows Lover commented
Google+ integration please... Not everyone likes to use Facebook, and it'll be one more feature and a reason for those who prefer G+ to come to Windows instead of Android.

why would they do that, Google + isnt owned by microsoft as the others are

@ajay and Microsoft just removed the integration of WIndows Live Messenger + the Facebook in their S.M.S./M.M.S. app, this is just a major shame, while Windows Phone removes it, Scroogle implements it.

ESPECIALLY with gchat being VERY popular.
i'd also suggest they integrate hangout into groups while they are at it.

G+ is certainly gaining momentum in the Social scene, with a lot to offer it's users. Rival OS or not, That's why a lot of people who are big into social are sticking with Android. If you want to pull more G+-ers away... integrate your support. I expect an official app soon, but people hub integration would be ideal.
I don't even use the FB app because of the people hub, I'd love to not have to use a separate app for G+.
One of the main reasons why Im still sticking with android.

One thing you all guys should know: GG is the biggest rival of MS and MS hates GG as much as Apple's iOS hates Android, if don't want to say much much more!
Take a glance some of their battlefields and you'll get how aggressive they are competing:
1. Web service:
- Cloud: Skydrive vs GG Drive.
- Email: Hotmail/Outlook/Live vs Gmail.
- Searching: Bing vs GG Search.
- Map: Bing Map vs GG Map.
- Mobile OS: WP vs Android.
- PC OS: Windows vs Chrome OS. (still in testing, I'm not sure)
3. Web browser: Chrome vs IE.
So far, the biggest affection to MS's golden egg: business area. GG is trying so hard to compete with MS in this area. And to limit the growth of GG, MS has made a big acquisition to Skype and Yammer recently.
As I mentioned above, those are the reasons why MS and Apple allied with FB, Twitter and LinkedIn closely.
I don't hate G+, but as you know, forget G+ and don't hope on MS's support anymore. G+ is the loneliest in social network's challenge.
Ah, I shouldn't forget to mention that I guessed the reason why MS support GG SearchGmail, Youtube just because the quantity of the users. Gmail is the 1st or 2nd between Hotmail and Yahoo Mail. And GG Search, Youtube, nothing to say, dominated the world.
In brief, despite complaining MS about not supporting G+, you should ask G.
