New York: Google has started a new feature on to remind its users about the birthday of any of their Google+ friends.

The reminders will appear on Google.Com instead of Google`s social networking site Google+.

In a Google+ blogpost, Google`s Irene Chung said "starting today (August 28), 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."

Chung said at first birthday reminders would only be seen for people searching in English on Google.Com.

"We`ll be rolling this feature out gradually over the next few days," Chung said.

The feature can be seen on top right corner of the Google.Com. The birthday notification comes with a "Say happy birthday" link where users can leave a message for their friends.
