Google+ for Android Updated, Improved Notifications Included


Google+ for Android received a nice little update bringing it to version 1.0.5. Many of the changes brought about have been directly related to user feedback which not only shows you that Google cares about its newest product but that Goggle+ is evolving with its users and not against them. In this update, users who were frustrated with the notification system will breath a sigh of relief as improved notification reliability was made a priority. Other changes include:

  • “_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
