Google Wave 101

I’ve had a few people tell me they’ve gotten their Wave invite and then jumped in to check it out, but they didn’t really know what to do with it.  I’ve just put together a quick 4-1/2 minute screencast that shows some of the basics.  In this video, I’ll show you how to:

  • Add contacts so you can connect with your friends
  • Invite other users
  • Create a Wave and add a friend to it
  • Play with some of the basic extensions

It’s very simple stuff, but hopefully it’ll help you get your feet wet and start playing around.

You can watch the video here. (4:25)

If you’re still looking for an invite, keep following us on Twitter and we’ll post on there when we have more.

If you have other questions, please feel free to leave a comment on this post.


  1. Keep up the good work. I, for one, really appreciate your efforts to get as many people waving as possible! I don’t have wave yet, but hope to get an invitation soon. It’s refreshing to see that people like you are out there trying to make the wave community, and moreover the web community in general better by offering tips, tricks, and how-to’s for us users less experienced with Wave. Thanks again!

  2. You should tell people how to search or create the public wave
