Google+ announces its brand new app version for Android

Google+ announces its brand new app version for Android”

Google has quietly dropped the tappable shortcuts feature the company released just about a year ago in the Google search app.

While Google might have attempted their own social networking platform with Google+, it's safe to say that things on the Google+ front have been somewhat quiet. The Engineering Manager Leo Deegan came up with the announcement via a G Plus post, adding that it would resemble the previous version mostly, but would have significant changes. In fact it seems that there could be a new version of the Google+ Android app in the works. Google is still developing it, and have enough time to bring modernized features via the new "complete rewrites" of the new Google+ app. As per the post, we can infer that there is no drastic overhaul and majorly consists of upgradation. For instance, stream rendering and scrolling have been improved, the photo lightbox has been redesigned, comment options slide up from a bottom sheet, and grey-spammed comments are now viewable by post authors. Giving an example he described, "leaving a comment on a post causes a full refresh of the post to include your comment". Considering how Facebook and Twitter have many challenges - like fighting fake news and online harassment among other things - it will be interesting to see how Google+ will be in its latest avatar.
