Official Google+ Windows Phone app in the works

Earlier this month, Google released a big update to its previously released Windows Phone search app, adding new features. At the moment, it's the only app made by Google that support's Microsoft's mobile OS. However, it looks like that situation could change sometime in the near future.

Stefan Keuchel, an official Google PR rep for Germany, posted a message on his German language Twitter account, (via WPCentral.com) that in basic translated terms says that a Google+ app for Windows Phone devices is in the works. Unfortunately, there's no specific release date yet.

Google+ is, of course, Google's social networking service that is currently trying to compete with Facebook. Launched in June 2011, Google recently said the service now has over 90 million registered users. However, some in the industry have expressed doubts about Google+ and its future.

A recent ComScore report claims that Google+ users only spend about three minutes a month using the service. This is in comparison to Facebook which has its users spending six to seven hours a month on the PC site. Google claims that ComScore's numbers are much lower than its own Google+ statistics but it would not offer any specific numbers of its own.
