Google Stops Forcing New Users To Make Google+ Account

Since 2012, whenever people used to create a new Google account, at the same time, they were forced to open a Google+ account too. But now, Google+ is no longer a requirement for creating a Google account.

Google+No Longer Required For Creating Google Account

Creating a Google+ account was never that much of a pain anyway, but lifting the requirement signals that Google is less committed than it once was when it comes to force-feeding Google+ to its users. And this is only the latest indication. However, now whenever the new Google users would try to sign up for a Gmail, Google Docs, or other Google account, a new “No thanks” button will let them opt out of Google’s social network. Note that, Google has prevented itself from forcing users in many other cases. For example: in July of this year, Google stopped forcing Google+ users to use their real names.

On the other hand, Google hasn’t made any official announcements about the state of Google+. Does this anyhow mean that Google plans to pull the plug on Google+? Well, it should be interesting to see where Google takes its product from here on out. Share your thoughts with us in the comments below.
