'Google Mine' heads to Google+, Android?

A new service has reportedly been discovered that allows users to keep track of "belongings" and then share those with friends in different circles.

Google is preparing to launch a new service that will be integrated into Google+, according to a new report.

The folks over at Google Operating System, a blog that monitors the search giant, say they have obtained an image of a new service the company is working on called Google Mine. The screenshot describes the feature as allowing users to "share your belongings with your friends and keep up to date with what your friends are sharing." The app also lets users share items within certain Google+ Circles.

The idea appears to center on user interests and sharing with others all of the real-world things that people either own or want to buy. Google Operating System says that Mine would let users "organize the things you own, use, wish for, and more: gadgets, clothing, electronics, DVDs, cars, bikes, or anything."

In addition to the Google+ integration, Google Operating System says that the search company has an Android app for Mine. It's currently available in the company's internal marketplace, Bazaar.

CNET has contacted Google for comment on the report. We will update this story when we have more information.
