Last year Google Reader upgraded its range of products and offered search capability to its users. Now Google has added a new feature to Google Reader – it is the ability to comment on the shared conversations.

According to the Official Google Reader Blog:

"With our new conversation feature, you can have private discussions on shared items with your friends. Now, instead of obsessively asking everyone in your office if they have seen that awesome lego cake article you shared last night, they can tell you how awesome you are, right within Google Reader!

  3. You can also read and add comments on your iPhone as well.

Here are some of things that Google wants us to keep in mind:

  • Comments can only be seen by friends of the person who originally shared the item.
  • Comments are not yet available in the "All items" view.
  • We have much more planned for this feature, but we would love to hear what you think, too.
  • Currently, you cannot comment on items in a shared items subscription or on a shared tag; comments can only be made on items shared by friends.
  • This release is English-only for now.

Try it out!
