While there is no official Google+ support fr Windows Phone yet, that does not mean that you cannot use Google+. There are several 3rd party options available in the Windows Phone Store. Have a look:

Windows Phone Store - Google+

My favourite is named “Google Plus” by Apps for Windows Phone. While I haven’t tried all of the available options, this particular app has a polished user interface and has all the standard features you would fine in the Google+ app, including write, comment, +1, explore, search, upload images, check in, and save photos to your phone.

At first launch, you are required to sign in with your Google account details:
Google Plus by Apps for Windows Phone - Login

You are able to access all your Circles, or individual ones:
Google Plus by Apps for Windows Phone - All Circles

Notifications too:
Google Plus by Apps for Windows Phone - Notifications

Tap the Menu icon and you get this friendly sidebar interface:
Google Plus by Apps for Windows Phone - Menu

The “Me” page:
Google Plus by Apps for Windows Phone - Me

And there is a range of options available in the menu:
Google Plus by Apps for Windows Phone - Menu Up

Google Plus looks to me like a launcher wrapped up in the elegant Modern user interface. It is well designed and gets the job done.

Download Google Plus, or see all results for Google+ in the Store.

  1. it’s good that there are third party apps because it’s highly unlikely that Google will make official apps for Windows Phone. Google is very hostile to Microsoft
