    MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.--Dec. 2, 2004--Google Inc. (Nasdaq:GOOG - News)
    today launched the next generation Google Groups on the 'Groups' link
    of the Google home page at www.google.com. This enhanced product
    enables users to create, manage, search and browse web-based groups, as
    well as subscribe to and track favorite groups. Building on the
    foundation of the original service that currently includes more than 1
    billion searchable posts from the Usenet archive, Google Groups now
    offers users the ability to join and follow discussions among different
    groups, keep in touch with family and friends, and share information
    more easily.
    Using Google Groups, people can search and participate in a variety of
    discussions. For example, someone looking to buy a new digital camera
    this holiday season can search for (digital camera recommendations) and
    find relevant posts from others about the best cameras to buy. A user
    can star (bookmark) this topic to watch and subscribe to receive posts
    from a group such as rec.photo.digital to regularly read more opinions
    on digital cameras. Similarly, users looking for advice on treating
    carpal tunnel or disputing a cell phone bill can find discussions from
    other people who have experience in these areas. In addition, family,
    friends, and official organizations like schools or community centers
    can keep their members informed via email lists and announcement-only
    newsletters through Google Groups.
    "Google Groups enables users to easily gather groups of friends,
    acquaintances, and those sharing interests together, and communicate
    with them directly via email, newsletters and message boards," said
    Jonathan Rosenberg, vice president, Product Management, Google Inc.
    "These online communities connect people with information they care
    about, and that furthers our commitment to enhancing the online
    experience for Google users."

    New features of Google Groups include:
    -Create groups: Create, join and search email-based mailing lists, and
    designate your group as public (anyone can read the group's messages on
    the Web) or restricted (only members can read, respond or start new

    -Dynamic conversations: Postings to all Google Groups mailing lists and
    Usenet lists appear within seconds and are indexed within minutes.

    -Enhanced user interface: Track and mark topics using the "My starred
    topics" feature, and view postings by message summary, title, or
    conversation view.

    -Email notification: Receive individual messages or read daily email
    summaries to participate in discussions via your inbox.

    -Easy searching: Users can easily search for information within a group
    or across many groups.

    -Relevant text ads: Google Groups displays only targeted ads that are
    relevant to user searches or the content on the page.

    Google continues to experiment with new technologies that make it
    faster and easier for people to find and use relevant information.
    Currently in beta and available in English language only, Google Groups
    can be found by clicking on the 'Groups' link on the Google home page
    or visiting groups-beta.google.com.
