Google Wave is a new form of online communication that Google promises will change online communication. Â Wave is being released today to 100,000 testers
The new web application combines email, chat, Wiki documents, blogs and photo sharing sites and create a form of Internet communication called a wave.Â Google demonstrated Wave at the Google I/O developer conference in May.Â It was created by the same couple, Jens and Lars Rasmussen who developed Google Maps.Â They are hoping that the testers work out the bugs in the system before it is released worldwide.
“This should be something everybody uses and something everybody knows,” Jens Rasmussen said.Â In Wave, email communications can be edited by several users simultaneously. Â Users chat about certain sections of Wave documents in real time, where all users see what a person is typing as it is typed; and someone who arrives late can replay everything they’ve missed, CNN reported.Â
