Embed a Wave on a site; anyone can now view it

You’ve had the ability to embed waves on websites before, but there was one major problem; the only people that could view it were other Wave users.  That all changes today, as embedded waves are now visible to everyone!

This is a big step forward, and certainly makes Wave a killer liveblogging tool.  The one catch is that this doesn’t work in Internet Explorer (even with the Google Chrome Frame), but they’ll be fixing that soon.  If you want to try it yourself, just use this simple tool.

Want to see it in action?  Just scroll down.  I’ve embedded a wave in this post to try it out.  Can you see it?

google.load(“wave”, “1″);
google.setOnLoadCallback(initialize);
function initialize() {
var waveframe = document.getElementById(“waveframe”);
var embedOptions = {
target: waveframe,
header: true,
toolbar: true,
footer: true
};
var wavePanel = new google.wave.WavePanel(embedOptions);
wavePanel.loadWave(“googlewave.com!w+Lis328SqA”);
}

  1. Hey,
    I didn’t realise that the public view only started this month… I’ve embedded WAVE on my teaching site, but I only did it a couple of days ago…
    Come and have a look at English Circles

  2. …. having tried to use your WAVE I’m a bit worried, I couldn’t join it.
    Is there a way that would allow me to join the wave and edit it?
