Buzz Now in Gmail Mobile

Google launched Buzz, their social media service that's tied into Gmail, a few months ago with some fanfare and loads of fizzle. Privacy quickly became a concern with users and as a result, the company tweaked the settings.

Despite the bumps in the road, Buzz seems to be puttering along and Google isn't ditching it.

Evidence of that is the fact that Buzz is now available through the mobile version of Gmail.

According to the Official Google Mobile Blog:

"...we created the mobile web app at so you could post buzz on the go. Depending on your inbox integration settings buzz gets sent to your Gmail inbox when people @reply you, comment on something you’ve posted, or comment on a post after you.

With the latest iteration of Gmail for mobile, we’ve worked to integrate buzz with your mobile inbox. Now, you’ll see buzz in your inbox on your phone just like you do in the desktop version of Gmail, complete with the little Google Buzz icon."

The mobile version has all the functionality as the desktop browser version does.

A few weeks ago, Google launched an Android widget for Buzz that would allows users to post text or photos to the service without having to launch any app on the device.
