Gmail to add interactive Twitter-like live updates

Google Gmail

We get unofficial news from a WSJ subscription that Google will be adding a new feature to its Gmail service. It will be a new feature that will allow user to share their status that we’ve already seen from many popular social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook. The new add-on will be rolling out as early as this week.

Gmail already has the feature to chat with contacts and set short status messages much like Yahoo Mail. Now the add-ons that we’re talking about will display status updates of a user’s Gmail contacts, it will also allow user to share their YouTube and Picasa content.

I think it would be fun if this feature will have integration with Facebook or Twitter that user will have their friends update feed to their Gmail status updates. Isn’t it a great idea, an attempt to rival Facebook and Twitter?
