Google Wave, the Web-based collaboration product Google introduced last May, is signing up 100,000 beta users to test the service, according to Daily Tech. New users will have access to Google Wave beginning September 30.
The next step to a full public launch of the application, the additional beta testers represent a true test for Google Wave. Google's launch of Google Chrome Frame was a major step in prepping Wave for broader adoption. What remains interesting is what companies will build on top of the file sharing and real-time collaboration platform, says eWEEK. BT Group's Ribbit VoIP unit plans to develop telephony-based gadgets specifically for Wave.
