Google+ update

We've gotten a sneak peek at some new features coming to Google+ as a whole, and the Android app just got itself a nice little update. Here's what's new:

  • Start a hangout from a Messenger conversation
  • New design of the photos album view
  • People suggestions when composing a Messenger conversation
  • New icons to show which photos have been uploaded to Google+ via Instand Upload
  • Ability to leave one-to-one Messenger Conversations
  • Bug fixes

Snag the update in the Market now, or at the links after the break.

Thanks, @Freeborock!

Google+ app update brings new photo views, allows you to start hangouts from phone


"Google+ app update brings new photo views, allows you to start hangouts from phone"

but it doesn't bring in any new users or posts...


Google+ app is better than Facebook's. Plain and simple. And it is getting better with these steady stream of updates. Google needs to market Google+ to the world to compete with Facebook. Until then, it's a social media curiosity. Come on Google, you can do it!

I have a FFC but the app tells me I need one to start a hangout?!? Probably because I'm rooted with CM7 on my Moto Triumph. Skype, Tango, and all the other apps that use the Front Facing Camera recognize and use it just fine though.

Any one have hangouts on an Epic 4g? Even though we got Gingerbread (like yesterday) there's still no support for G+ (or GTalk) video. This is so frustrating!

anyone get this to work on the Droid Charge (update 2.3.6)? For some reason, I can try to start a hangout... FFC activates. I can see myself but when I click hangout, it doesn't invite other party.
