Google+ for Android update delivers photo-related enhancements


The new Google Now Launcher for Nexus and GPe devices isn’t the only software coming out of Mountain View today, and thankfully this next one stands to be useful to a whole lot more Android users than just the owners of those handful of models: a new update to Google+ is on its way out, and the name of the game is photos, photos, photos.

Photography has been on our minds the last few times we talked about Google+ and the company doesn’t let us down today, delivering new filters, viewing modes, and editing tools.

For instance, you can now view all your pics in one display, whether they’re stored locally or in the cloud – and while it’s not quite there yet, Google says that support for libraries numbering in the tens of thousands of images is coming in just a matter of weeks. There are also new controls to quickly jump back and forth in time, helping you locate older pics more easily.

The non-destructive editor now supports cross-device editing through the cloud, letting you begin work on one phone and finish it up on another device altogether. What you’re able to do with these pics is also expanded from previous releases, with new filters now present.

The updated Google+ is available in the Google Play Store now, accessible through the source link below.
