Google+ Android app gets updated with new features

The Google+ social network definitely appears to be taking off and the search giant has just updated its Android app to includes some new features and to fix some bugs.

The Google+ Android app 1.0.2 now includes:

Fun Features

– Customize your Stream to show streams from individual circles (Stream>Menu>Manage Views)

– New UI allows adding multiple people or entire circles to an existing group Huddle

– Set photo as wallpaper (when viewing photo)

Good Fixes

– Fixed some issues with the Swype keyboard

– If someone you’ve never huddled with before invites you to a group Huddle, you can now dismiss the invitation

– Performance improvements and bug fixes throughout the app

That’s a nice little start and check out the video below for an example of what you can do with the service with the Android app. Now, let’s get an iOS app out there already.

  • I’d like to see a fully functioning google+ app e.g. sparks support, ability to create/delete circles without having to add a friend first, share posts, etc
