Google makes it easier for strangers to email account holders

As per the change, Google+ users can email anyone on Google’s social network simply by typing in the person’s name

Published: Updated:

Google has apparently made it possible to email anyone on Google+, meaning you no longer need someone’s email address to send them an email.

As per the change, Google+ users can email anyone on Google’s social network simply by typing in the person’s name.

There are, however, some restrictions, while emails from persons not listed as contacts will go to your inbox, by default they will only reach the “Social” tab and not the main inbox.

Google has also reassured users that anyone emailing from a Google+ account will not see the actual email address unless the recipient replies.

According to a post on Google’s blog: “This feature is rolling out over the next couple of days to everyone that uses Gmail and Google+. You’ll get an email with information and a link to the setting when the feature is available.”
