How To Create Public Wave [Google Wave Tip]

Googlewave Even after giving out many Google wave invites to my readers and friends, I still have 32 more invites left out to giveaway. And that number surprisingly keeps on increasing day by day.

Google wave is actually a personal communication and collaboration tool designed to merge email, IM and social networking under one roof.

invite list

If you’re still waiting for an invite, shoot me an email or comment here with your email id for getting one from me. One of the features I like about google wave is that, it’s possible to share a wave publicly and could be accessed by anyone who has a wave account.

How To Search For Public Google Waves

For searching a wave shared publicly, you can use this search string for getting all the Google waves that can be accessed by public.

with: public

By making a Google wave public, other users with wave accounts will be able to see and reply to the message or just browse the wave.

How To Create a Public Google Wave

According to the Help topics given at Google wave, a particular wave could be made public by adding a participant public@a.googlewave.com.

But when i tried to add public@a.googlewave.com as a participant, i got an error “public@a.googlewave.com is not a Google Wave account”.

not a participant

So how to make a Google wave public?

The only way it worked was to add public@a.googlewave.com as my contact first and then adding this id as a participant to the wave i like to share publicly.

To add as a contact, click the + sign near manage contact, enter the public wave id(public@a.googlewave.com or public@a.gwave.com) and HIT ENTER (twice).

Now add this member as a participant to make your Google waves public. By doing this, you can embed the wave somewhere else using the Google Wave APIs.
