Google Wave Being Released to Beta Testers Tomorrow

google_wave_logoCNN is reporting that Google is getting ready to release a beta build to 100,000 testers this Wednesday.  Google Wave has been a highly anticipated app from the search giant, and is a program that is reported to have some Android connectivity as well.

What is Google Wave?  The following is from the Google Wave site:

“What is a Wave?

A wave is equal parts conversation and document. People can communicate and work together with richly formatted text, photos, videos, maps, and more.

A wave is shared. Any participant can reply anywhere in the message, edit the content and add participants at any point in the process. Then playback lets anyone rewind the wave to see who said what and when.

A wave is live. With live transmission as you type, participants on a wave can have faster conversations, see edits and interact with extensions in real-time.”

Pretty nifty technology here, add to the fact that perhaps there will be an Android tie in, the power to collaborate on your Android handset in this realtime way is something that should get any tech geek worked up.

You can sign up on the Google Wave site to be considered for the beta, as of writing, they were looking for people who have their domains run through Google apps.  Here’s to hoping the Wave will come to Android!

    So excited about Wave. I put my name in the hat early on, so am holding out some hope that I'll get an invite tomorrow, but know that it's probably a long shot.

    There is an Android client. Last I heard it was very early on and barely worked, but it is at least in development.

    If you have an hour and a half, check out the demo video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v_UyVmITiYQ

    Same here. I am excited what will happen today. Will I get one of those beta keys or can I even start to develop for Wave. Let's see. 😉

    I hope is faster and with more features working than the developer preview.

    I received my Google Wave invitation today. I can now go to https://wave.google.com and when I am logged in with my usual google account I can use Google Wave. It works very well even from my G1, where I am automatically shown a version of the Wave client that is optimised for the small screen. It does take a while to load but then works very well. All the functionality of the desktop client is also there in the mobile client.
