BANGALORE, INDIA: Amidst the raising tide of competition with Microsoft recent announcements about the  launch of a new search engine, Google, on Thursday at the Google I/O demonstrated the first preview of its Google Wave, encouraging the software developers to feel the tinge of it.

A blog-post on the Google Code blog website said that Google Wave introduces a new platform built around hosted conversations called waves–this model enables people to communicate and work together in new and more effective ways.

It added that with the Google Wave APIs, developers can take advantage of this collaborative system by building on the Google Wave platform.

A new tool for communication on the web, Google Wave brings in collaboration of e-mails, Instant Messaging.

The blog of Lars Rasmussen, software engineering manager, Google read that  A "wave" is equal parts conversation and document, where people can communicate and work together with richly formatted text, photos, videos, maps, and more.

Talking about how this platform works, it said in Google Wave one can create a wave and add people to it. Everyone on the wave can use richly formatted text, photos, gadgets, and even feeds from other sources on the web. They can insert a reply or edit the wave directly.

“As with Android, Google Chrome, and many other Google efforts, we plan to make the code open source as a way to encourage the developer community to get involved.” said Rasmussen.

He added that Google Wave is very open and extensible, and they are  inviting developers to add all kinds of cool stuff before our public launch.
