Google+ App for Android Gets Updated – Improved Notifications, 1:1 Huddles and More

Steven Blum

Google+ for Android has just received a nice little update which improves on a number of the app's best-known features. It's now possible to start a huddle with someone via their profile or start a group huddle from a circle. The app also now notifies you of circle adds in bulk, so you don't have to do as much clicking. Mentioning people in a post is easier, as well as sharing content with just one other person. All in all, it's a sizeable update for such a new app. Full list of updates after the break.  

What's in this version:

  • Improved notifications reliability
  • "_add to circle" notifications shown in bulk
  • Share stream posts to individual people
  • Clicking a +mention takes you to the person’s profile
  • +mentions now autofill from your Circles
  • Stream no longer resets to top when screen is rotated
  • Nearby accuracy
  • Start a 1:1 huddle from a person’s profile or a group huddle from a circle profile
  • Hide 1:1 huddles
  • Clickable links in huddles
  • Improved autocomplete when adding a person to a huddle
