Google+ Redesign Makes Its Way To Android

Two weeks ago, Google introduced some sweeping changes to the look of its Google+ app, first introducing the improvements for the iOS edition. Not to make Android users feel left out, the company promised to have the same sort of changes ready for that platform in just a few weeks. True to its word, a new version of Google+ for Android is now available, bringing the app back in line with iOS and offering users a smattering of new features.

The new Google+ is supposed to be filled with visual cues that make navigating through the app easier and more intuitive. Changes to how you access features will let you create your own Hangouts, straight from the app’s main screen, and Hangouts now support ringing notifications.

New features include the ability to edit posts, as well as download photos featured in them. That ability extends to Messenger, and the app will now suggest new contacts you may wish to add.

It might take a little adjustment getting used to the new look, so head on over to the Google Play store to download the latest version and get started familiarizing yourself with the new Google+.
