Google Reader play – from Google labs

Google Labs has announced one more experiment, Google Reader Play.

Though it is called as Google Reader Play, it doesn’t do anything with your Google Reader Subscriptions.

It just plays some interesting stuff, just like, Google reader Recommended items. But you can see them in full screen with interesting images. You can directly like /Share or Star the item with one click.

It looks somewhat similar to Google News Fastflip.
