Google+ helps you share the right things with the right people when you are online, but how about when you are not connected to the Internet? A team of motivated engineers in India realized the importance of connecting you with the right people on Google+ -- regardless of where you are or what kind of device you're on -- and we've introduced Google+ SMS features as a result.

a) Post your updates to Google+ via SMS

b) Receive SMS notifications & reply to them over SMS

To get started, activate your phone number on the Google+ settings page (Supported mobile operators)

When Google+ launched in June last year, SMS features were available only in India and the US. Today we’re pleased to announce the expansion of Google+ SMS to 41 new countries:
Afghanistan, Algeria, Angola, Bahrain, Benin, Cambodia, Cameroon, Congo (DRC), Cote D'Ivoire, Egypt, Ghana, Guinea, Indonesia, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Kenya, Kuwait, Kyrgyzstan, Liberia, Malawi, Malaysia, Maldives, Morocco, Mozambique, Niger, Nigeria, Pakistan, Philippines, Saudi Arabia, Senegal, Sierra Leone, Sri Lanka, Tanzania, Thailand, Tunisia, Uganda, Uzbekistan, Vietnam and Zambia.
