What is Google Wave?

Google Wave is a new tool for communication and collaboration on the web.

A wave is equal parts conversation and document. People can communicate and work together with richly formatted text, photos, videos, maps, and more.

A wave is shared. Any participant can reply anywhere in the message, edit the content and add participants at any point in the process. Then playback lets anyone rewind the wave to see who said what and when.

A wave is live. With live transmission as you type, participants on a wave can have faster conversations, see edits and interact with extensions in real-time.

Google Wave Technologies

Real-time collaboration: Concurrency control technology lets all people on a wave edit rich media at the same time.

Natural language tools: Server-based models provide contextual suggestions and spelling correction.

Google Wave API: Embed waves in other sites or add live social gadgets, thanks to Google Wave APIs.

Here’s how it works: In Google Wave you create a wave and add people to it. Everyone on your wave can use richly formatted text, photos, gadgets, and even feeds from other sources on the web. They can insert a reply or edit the wave directly. It’s concurrent rich-text editing, where you see on your screen nearly instantly what your fellow collaborators are typing in your wave. That means Google Wave is just as well suited for quick messages as for persistent content — it allows for both collaboration and communication. You can also use “playback” to rewind the wave and see how it evolved. (Source: Google Blog)
