Blogger Play

Blogger launches a new website called Blogger Play. This website features all the pictures posted by bloggers in all public blogs hosted by them ( The pictures run like a slideshow. You can pause and play and control it's sliding speed. If you have a Blogger blog and posted pictures in it, there's a chance that it will appear here. You can visit Blogger Play here.

Here's what the Blogger Team says:

Today we’re pleased to launch Blogger Play, a neat little toy we’ve cooked up to show you photos and blog posts as you’ve never seen them before.

Shortly after Blogger launched photo uploading two years ago, one of our engineers whipped up a web page that would show us the pictures that were being uploaded in real time. The result was fun, often beautiful, but above all, compelling. We couldn’t stop watching.

Over the years we’ve kept this photo scroller as part of the Blogger offices, on a monitor or projector, as an interesting (distracting?) slideshow, and a reminder of the diversity and vivaciousness of Blogger blogs. The fame of the scroller spread within Google, until one day we were asked, “so, when are you launching this?”
