New Blogger Features Available In Draft Mode

Blogger has launched a new platform for beta features they are testing, calling it Blogger in Draft. Blogger in Draft is how they can release new features that aren’t quite ready yet, giving users a chance to try out what they are working on. Not only is it cool, it shows us that indeed Blogger has grown up and is again a live platform with active development and new features. Thank god, because a little while back, I was calling Blogger dead and chastising Google for letting it happen.

The first Draft feature (announced on the Blogger in Draft blog) is video uploading, letting you hit a button while writing a post to choose a video and upload it to Google Video.

Philipp points out one ridiculous thing, not that there’s Blogger in Draft:

*To recap, when a Google product or feature is in early status, it’s called: Labs, Experimental, Draft, Test, or Beta.

Jeez, that’s crazy.

If you haven’t looked at Google Labs in a while, check out Mashable, which has a feature on all the Labs products, including quite a few we haven’t heard from in a while.
