Google Wave gets rolled out to a 100,000+ test audience today in the hopes that the bugs and wrinkles will get fully worked out. Those people will also get invites to hand out to people, with what I assume, is a rollout plan similar to Gmail.
I’m of two thoughts: Is this really going to be the next generation of communication programs and when will it roll out to the public at large? “While the team declined to give a specific time-table, they did say that it will definitely be 2010, and alluded to the fact that it should be the first half of 2010. They also noted that one key next step will be to provide support for other languages. Right now, Wave is English-only, even though it has tools built in that translate its content to any other language,” writes Tech Crunch.
