Google Wave screenshotsGoogle Wave is an online solution for real-time communication and collaboration. A wave can be both a conversation and a document where people can discuss and work together using richly formatted text, pictures, videos, maps, and more. It is a web solution, computing platform, and communications protocol developed to merge email, instant messaging, wiki, and social networking. It has a strong collaborative and real-time focus supported by extensions that can provide, for example, reliable spelling/grammar checking, automated translation between 40 languages, and numerous other extensions.

Google Wave was a new Web communications platform. It was written in Java using Openjdk and its web front-end used the Google Web Toolkit. Google Wave operates like previous messaging solutions such as email and Usenet, but instead of sending a message along with its entire thread of previous messages, or requiring all responses to be stored in each user's email for context, message docs (referred to as waves) that contain complete threads of media messages (blips) are pERPetually stored on a central server. Waves are shared with colleagues who can be added or removed from the wave at any point during a wave's existence.

The opportunity to modify a wave at any location lets users add collaborative docs, edited in a manner akin to wikis. Waves can simply link to other waves. It is in many respects a more advanced discussion board. A wave can be read and known to exist by only one person, or by two or more. It can also be public, available for reading and writing to everyone on the Wave.
