Google+ for Android gets updated with new UI and features


If you use Google Plus for Android, you might want to check the Play Store for an update. Today, Google announced that a new update that brings polish and performance to the Google+ app for Android was now available for all to enjoy. Surprisingly, this update was pushed out to iOS devices a few weeks ago.

This one is a major update for Android as it brings new visuals and improved navigation. In addition, it also brings the following new features:

  • The ability to initiate a Hangout from the main menu
  • Support for ringing hangout notification
  • Support for post editing
  • Messenger suggestions for people you may know
  • Download photos from posts or Messenger conversations

Like always, some people are already complaining about this new layout, despite it being the best thing to happen to the Google+ app when it was released for iOS a few weeks ago. I personally like it and I think that you should go ahead and give it a shot. If you haven’t already, head over to the Google Play store and download the new Google+ version 2.6 today!
