After announcing a number of changes to Google+ service at the I/O Developers Conference, Google has now updated the Android app version of the service has been updated to include the features that were introduced in for the desktop version (new stream, new photo capabilities and Google Hangouts). Also new additional feature - location section.
Last week Gizbot told you about the new features that were introduced to the Google+ service, which included redesigned stream, advanced hashtag system for better access to content, Hangouts and powerful picture tools. For more information on the updates click here.
Coming to the additional features, the Google+ app now offers an entirely new section for "Locations". You can now share your location with your friends or with some circles. They will be able to find you by tapping on the section. Understandably, your location or your friend's location is marked on a Map.
Bradley Horowitz, Vice President of Product, Google+, said today: "Photos, location and the stream are only some of the things we've improved in today's update. Notifications are nicer to look at and easier to use. You can edit additional profile fields on the go. And there's one-tap access to the all new Hangouts app - just to name a few."
The update started rolling out starting from May 20th. You can download the latest version of the app Google Play Store.
