Google+ App for Android Gets an Update

Google Plus update for AndroidIf you’re a Google+ loving Android user who watched with envious eyes as those iOS toting friends of yours got an upgrade to the service’s app, and you didn’t… well, you can relax. Google+ has released an update for their app, and this time it’s the Android-using Google faithful who are getting the love.

Like the iOS Google+ app, the Android Google+ update makes the the experience much more visual, with images filling your stream. If you see something that catches your eye, you tap on the preview to go to the full post. And Android got a few nice extras as well, such as ringing Hangout notifications, the ability to start a Hangout from the main menu, the same ability to edit your posts from mobile as from a computer, and the ability to download photos from posts or Messenger conversations.

Do you have the new app? If so, how do you like it? Let us know in in the comments.

    I like it. But if people don’t use hi-res images, your stream looks like crap.
