Google’s new Currents app is its enterprise replacement for Google+

Now that Google+ is history, today, Google revealed what will be offered to G Suite users instead: Corrientes. The new application "allows people to have meaningful discussions and interactions in their organization, helping to keep everyone informed and giving leaders the opportunity to connect with their employees."

The company says that Currents has a new look compared to Google+ – It seems similar to my eyes – and has been optimized to make it faster to post content and tag it. Publications of the top executives of a company may have priority in the flow of Currents to ensure that employees see it.

Currents is being released in beta, and Google says that G Suite companies can request access to the program from now on. Google+ posts will be automatically transferred to Corrientes. (I'm just talking about G Suite publications, personal posts on Google+ are missing right now).

Google is actually recycling the name of Currents; previously it was a magazine application that was the forerunner of Google Play Newsstand, which was subsequently replaced by Google News. I'm not looking forward to an unfortunate future for Corrientes, but if it's finally turned off to Google+, that would mean that the same brand will have been given the ax twice. Even for Google, that would be something.
