The ‘Realtime’ search feature has been temporarily disabled while Google explores how to incorporate it into its recently launched Google+ project.


A message posted early Monday on Twitter by the team behind Google Realtime says the search feature has been temporarily disabled while Google explores how to incorporate its recently launched Google+ project into the feature. The tweet tells readers to “stay tuned.”

The company envisions including Google+ information along with other Realtime data from a variety of sources, said Gabriel Stricker, a Google spokesman.

Google+ is the search giant’s latest stab at entering the social networking segment of the Internet. The project was unveiled last week and lets users share things with small groups of people.
