Just when everyone thought that Google is planning to shut down Google+, there comes a surprise move. After a series of ups and downs, Google announced a small new improvement on Hangouts and now an acquisition. That’s true; Google acquired Polar, a startup that allows users to create visual polls for their websites or apps.

The official confirmation came from the mouth (or status update) of Dave Besbris, Vice President of Software Engineering at Google+ and was a bit laconic. However, sources report that the plan is to incorporate Polar team to that of Google+ and shut down the startup some time near the end of 2014. According to the official site, publisher tools will be available till then.

This development follows the tracks of Tumblr who partnered with Wedgies to create interactive polls, earlier this year.

The question now is: What will Google+ become? Thoughts?
