Google Latitude Brings check in Feature Like Foursquare


We informed you last Wednesday that Google Updated its Google maps for Android with Minor Bugs Fixed, but Google had sneaked in a very pleasant surprise. Lattitude check-ins now earn you points, which affect your social score in a Google+ leaderboard.

Competition is usually affected when Google releases new services. If possible, we try to stick to Google products, as they work seamlessly with the Android operating system. This service is much to the likes of a popular social check-in network called href=”” rel=”homepage” target=”_blank” title=”Foursquare”>Foursquare.

Not everyone is seeing the feature just yet, and it only appears to reveal itself after you check-in somewhere. In fact, we still haven’t found a way to pull up the leaderboard without first registering our location. Google has not flatly stated that this update is meant to create competition for Foursquare, or even Facebook Places.
