Google+ Promised Something Cool For Android, And They Delivered

When Google updated its Google+ iPhone app, they promised something even cooler for Android. Today, they delivered. The new Android app. has arrived. Here's what you get:

  • Choose "Hangout" from the new drop-down menu to start a Hangout with any of your friends right from your phone. Your friends will immediately receive a call inviting them to join. If they miss it, they can join later with a single tap.
  • A prettier stream with full-screen photos and videos as well as fade-in and -out effects as you scroll.
  • New navigation ribbon to access your profile, circles, stream, Hangouts, photos, Messenger, and notifications.
  • " The ability to download photos directly from Google+, and turn them into wallpaper."
  • The ability to edit posts inline.
