Apparently, competition in social media market has increased exponentially in last few months. Social media giants have continuously launched and added various features, to stay ahead in the race. In accordance to the launch of Applications by Facebook, Google+ has also announced a new feature which lets users to record video from their webcam right from Google+. This new feature will allow users to skip YouTube as they can directly record and share video  with their friends in circle through Google+. This new feature will make social network sites more social and encompassing.

Interestingly, this feature comes just after Facebook announced it open graph applications. It directly highlights that competition between Google+ and Facebook is just becoming intense with each passing day and both are trying their level best to drag down each other.

“Google+ has long been the place to share and interact with video — Whether it’s using Hangouts with your friends or watching YouTube videos. Today we’re making video a bit more fun by letting you record and share videos of yourself using your webcam. To get started, click the video icon in the share box and choose Record Video. Once you’ve authorized Flash to access your camera, you can start recording. And once you’re done, the video appears as an attachment to your post — ready to share with your circles”, as said by Google+ team.

However, previous launches had directly affected Google+ growth in positive manner. Its user base has increased from 25 million to 63 million during the period of July to December 2011. And it’s expected to touch 300 million mark by year-end.

Users can avail this new feature by clicking on the “video button” option where they will see the new “Record Video” link. Once user click on the link it will directly gain access to their webcam to record the video and share it to their respective circles. Although, this button is quite similar to the button available on YouTube.

This new features is ideal for those users who want to share their videos in a given circle or privately to a user.

Personally, I feel users will definitely get benefited as this new feature will help them in sharing their recorded video in an ease manner with their friends on Google+. Also, it will help them to recorded moments and share it in interactive format with their friends.
