More Google Applications Available From Your Google Apps Accounts

Sweet! I just received this from Google:

Hello Google Apps administrator,

At long last, Google Apps accounts can now function more like full Google Accounts. In addition to current services like Gmail and Google Docs, you are now able to let your users access many more Google applications with their Google Apps accounts, like Blogger, Picasa Web Albums and Reader.

This transition will automatically happen for your Google Apps accounts this fall, but we encourage you to begin the transition on your own schedule as soon as possible.

Step 1: Review the known issues regarding this change
Step 2: Sign into the Google Apps control panel and access the transition dashboard
Step 3: Decide which Google services your users should be able to access with their Google Apps accounts
Step 4: Contact any users on your domain who have conflicting accounts
Step 5: Select specific users to be early adopters or transition your whole domain
We hope you and your users enjoy all the new capabilities now available with your Google Apps accounts. For help and answers to frequently asked questions, please visit our Help Center.
