    Google Buzz—Now for the Rest of Us (Android 1.6)

    Advertisement



    Just a few short days ago, Buzz was all the buzz on the internet and in internet-savvy circles. It didn’t take long for us, as Android users, to notice the greatest limitation of Buzz: lack of full support for pre 2.0 handsets. We complained, cries, and raised our voices in anger at Google, saying things like “you support the iPhone but not a version of Android that’s still being shipped on new phones?” Maybe Google heard us. Maybe they had this in the cards all along.

    So, users of 1.6 and 1.5, take out your phones, load up your favorite browser, head to http://buzz.google.com and simply tap on “Continue on an unsupported device.” Reading Buzzes from the people you follow works fully but it seems that the Nearby feature might not be able to access your phone’s location.

    In case it wasn't known, there is a Google Buzz Widget available for download through the Market. Post Publicly or Privately, include photos, include location (or not) straight through the widget. This is so much better to use than the Map buzzing. Finally, those stuck without 2.0+ are getting some luv.

    That is a nice Official Google widget, much better than the unofficial one they had out for awhile...

    I'm liking Buzz and now it's been made easier for the lucky Android users.
