Google plans to integrate more of its services into the Google Apps platform, which lets businesses use the company's Web-based tools within their own custom domains.

Google Apps already incorporates several core office productivity applications, such as Docs, Gmail, and Calendar. Starting this summer, these will be joined by Blogger, Picasa, Reader, and AdWords, the Google Enterprise team said in a blog post Thursday.

"Co-workers will be able to publish their organization's blog on Blogger, share project images with Picasa Web Albums, track industry news in Google Reader, advertise online with AdWords and much more, all without switching back and forth between multiple accounts," Google Apps product management director Dennis Troper said in the post.
