Google+ minus social spam.
Today we’re adding a new feature to the Google+ platform: application sign-in. Whether you’re building an app for Android, iOS or the web, users can now sign in to your app with Google, and bring along their Google+ info for an upgraded experience. It’s simple, it’s secure, and it prohibits social spam. Google+ Adds Application Sign-In [googleplusplatform.blogspot.co.uk]
If you’re building an app for Android, iOS or the web, and you’d like to include Google+ Sign-In, simply dive into our developer docs and start checking stats once your integration is live. Android apps will require the latest version of Google Play Services, which is rolling out to all devices in the next day or so.

But Google has already offered "Application Sign-in" for quite a while. How is this different or better than Using OAuth 2.0 for Login [developers.google.com]?

It appears that G is moving more functionality under the G+ umbrella to pump up their G+ numbers.

Danny Sullivan was saying he could reap most of the benefits of a Google+ signin (aside from app signin, I suppose?) simply by signing in with a regular "Google account". This led me to wonder how long it'll be before the distinction between "Google account" and "Google+ account" becomes *fully* meaningless. BWC
