According to Google’s Irene Chung on Google Plus:
Everyone deserves a little love on their birthday, so we’re making it easier for you and your friends to celebrate on Google. Starting today, you’ll see a reminder on Google.com when someone in your circles has a birthday! From there it’s easy to share a fun message, photo, or video with the birthday gal or guy.
When it’s your special day, we only remind the people you’ve chosen to share your birthday with. Update your Google+ birthday preferences to make sure you’re sharing with the right people: https://plus.google.com/up/birthday
At first you’ll only see birthday reminders if you’re searching in English on Google.com. We’ll be rolling this feature out gradually over the next few days. Here’s to all the happy birthdays to come!
This is a very handy feature which will help you remind your friends/family birthday in case you missed to checkout facebook. Google has been constantly updating its Google plus page to better compete Facebook and these small features will off course help the Google plus community.
