GX for Google+ (Classic) brings drag & drop bookmarking of posts, on-air events, people, and more to your own personal dashboard.
Do you lose track of interesting Google+ content you wish you could have saved— but it got lost in the endless Stream? Are there times when you find meaningful posts— but no time to engage them in the moment? With the GX extension, simply drag the post you want saved to a pop-up drop zone, and it will be viewable at any time on your Personal Page of our Google+ "help-companion site” G+Now.
Have you ever missed a "Hangout on Air” because you forgot when it was scheduled? Do you find yourself wanting a better way to track upcoming events? Now with GX for Google+ just drag a Hangout event post to the drop zone, drop it, and that event will now be viewable on the "What's on Now?” Video Event Calendar on G+Now.
To get started, be sure you are logged into your Google+ account before adding the GX extension. Click the GX icon found in the address bar to register a new account, or login with an existing one (this account will be the same as your G+Now account). Once logged in the GX extension will be enabled. Now as you hover across content on Google+, thin color-borders appear as an indicator of savable items. Save a post by dragging anywhere in its borders to the colored Drop Zone that will appear. You will see a visual confirmation of the save, and a small color dot gets "pinned" to the corner of that saved post. Where has it been saved? To your G+Now Personal Page!
Note: If GX border highlighting begins to bother you, or it prevents you from selecting text for copy & pasting, feel free to turn it off by right-clicking anywhere on Google+ and locating the GX menu. Also note that currently Posts, Events, and Hangouts on Air (on Google+ Classic) are fully functional. People, Communities, and Media from Posts will be coming soon.
