Your Google+ profile picture will soon be matched with your phone number
There is no word yet on exactly which builds of Android this will appear on, and there is no precise launch date. But you might want to make sure that your Google+ profile picture makes you look good. Verified phone numbers listed in your Google account will be a part of this new feature by default. So before the ball drops in Times Square to signal the start of 2014, you should make sure that you're happy with your profile picture because this is the image of you that many people you call will remember you by whenever your name comes up in conversation.

well it sounds like google is being super duper desperate in making google+ a thing!

Google once again forcing G+ onto users. Why can't they just leave it simple and stop trying to change everything?

You don't actually have to use Google+. Not sure where you are getting this from, besides more features is always a good thing as long they are optional.

And yet Google continues to push it over and over.

And why shouldn't they, it's one of their products and the more people they get to use it, the better it is for them? And still Google+ remains completely optional.

Because not everyone wants or cares about G+. I use gmail but that doesn't mean I want Froogle shoehorning me into G+

Then don't use it, Google it's not pointing a gun to your face forcing you

As protozeloz said, and as I said twice already, don't use it, it's always been optional. I'm using Gmail just fine without Google+ and it's never been forced on to me.

So you are that special person for whom Google should close down Google+!!!!! Because you don't use it...

The only thing I use Google+ for is the auto backup of pictures taken on android. Best feature about the service. They need to change it by adding features to get more users. It's all about revenue.
