You can now sign up for early access to Google’s wacky Area 120 app experiments

New, 3 comments

Area 120 is the name for Google’s in-house startup incubator that has developed a variety of odd apps. These include Uptime, a social YouTube app that recently opened to the public; the voice-based Supersonic Fun Voice Messenger; and the just announced Advr, which is experimenting with VR advertisements.

Google is officially putting Area 120 (which derives its name as a place that spends 100 percent of its time working on 20 percent projects) in a more public-facing place today: a new central website where users can sign up for early access to future Area 120 experiments.

There isn’t much else beyond an option to sign up for now, but if the new page is anything to go by, there should be more to come from Area 120 soon.
