[Video] Google+ Android App Now Supports Multi-Person Video Chat

Google+ is now officially open to all, even though it was previously not such a big problem to join the new network by invitation. Whether this will boost Google+'s numbers, I'm not sure, but there's no doubt Google's hoping the broad masses will now pour in.

I personally appreciate Google+'s rival Facebook – especially since it's undergone its own Google+ makeover and now comes with a winder range of sharing options – and I'm not sure Google+ will ever be able to approach Facebook's massive popularity. That said, I'm not sure this is absolutely necessary. Ultimately, Google+ caters to a different clinetele (especially to those who arbitrarily hate Facebook).

That said, Google+'s Android app is pretty fantastic, especially the feature that saves your photos to a cloud for easy sharing. The app just got a full makeover by the Google team, bringing a bunch of changes including...

  • Update: Bug fixes in mobile hangouts
  • Join hangouts from the mobile app
  • Set profile photo
  • Huddle is now Messenger
  • Send photos in Messenger
  • Reliability improvements in Messenger
  • Long press on posts in stream to +1, share and mute
  • Improved video playback support
  • Improved public search for people
  • Granular push notification settings
  • Move app to your SD card
  • Improved +mention support

Here's video of the new multi-person video chat feature in action:
