Google+ for Android gets it's UI overhaul

1 post in this topic

Following on from the recent major update of the Google+ app for iOS, it&#39;s the turn of the Google+ app for Android to get a UI overhaul. And it&#39;s shiny&#33;<br />

<br />

The update, which wears version 2.6 and is available immediately from the Google Play Store, emphasises improvements to &#39;polish and performance&#39; according to a launch post on the Google blog.<br />

<br />

New features in the release include...<br />

  • Start a hangout on the go<br />
  • Edit posts inline—as well as a stream that celebrates the rich content shared across Google+<br />
  • A navigation ribbon that slides in and out, providing quick access to just about everything<br />
  • Download photos directly from Google+, and turn them into wallpaper

<br />

I&#39;ve just downloaded the app and given it a quick whirl... so what&#39;s it like? It sure is a lot more &#39;flashy&#39; in its design, but at first glance it feels a little busy... hopefully not design at the expense of usability?<br />

<br />

There&#39;s no doubt that Google are putting significant effort behind Google+, but I still have trouble determining exactly what will get the network to the point where it can become a significant challenger to Facebook and Twitter&#39;s dominance.<br />

<br />
