Google Buzz comes to Android phones

A new Android version of Google Buzz has appeared, allowing users to access the social networking service that the search giant has set up to compete with the other market leading sites.

As long as Android users' phone supports at least Android 1.6, the Buzz app will be available and even has its own widget that can be added to the handset's homescreen for easy and quick access.

Google's Zak Cohen said: "Like other mobile access points for Google Buzz, the widget lets you choose to tag your post with the location or place from which it was posted. You can post buzz about a great meal you had and share photos of the new restaurant.

"To save time, your posts will upload in the background, letting you get back to your scrumptious dessert without a wait."

The only way for Android users to access Buzz in the past was via the browser-based website, or as an extra layer on Google Maps.

Buzz is still in the early stages of growth and so far Google has seemed keen to take on board criticism from its users as to the implementation of features within the service.
