How to Find Wave ID in Google Wave

My friend Enk has shared a method on how you can find the ID of your wave on Google Wave. Follow the steps below to find yours:

  • Open Google Wave, and add this bot in your contacts: embeddy@appspot.com
  • Click on a wave and wait till it loads in the right panel.
  • After a few seconds, you will notice the address bar has been updated with a code i.e “googlewave.com!xxxxxxxx”
  • The xxxxxxxx in that code will be your wave’s ID.

    When you find the wave ID, the wave can be embeded into any other platform. In other words you can start a wave, get its ID and embed it on 100 of your websites. And they will all be updated simultaneously.

  • You can use this ID to use in different apps..
    I've used this ID to integrate Waves into Joomla and WordPress so far.
