Refreshed and sexy: Google+ 2.6 comes to Google Play

Refreshed and sexy: Google+ 2.6 comes to Google Play

Google just dropped a brand new, completely redesigned Google+ application into the Google Play and boy is it sharp.  Not only does it look gorgeous and more streamlined, but it’s got a bunch of new features under the hood.  For starters, it’s now possible to start a hangout while on the go, edit your posts inline, and download photos from Messenger conversations or posts.  If you’ve not jumped on the Google+ bandwagon yet then you’d be silly not to do so with this release.

Key improvements to Google+ (v2.6) include:

  • Visual refresh of the stream and improved navigation
  • Initiate a hangout from the main menu
  • Support for ringing hangout notification
  • Support for post editing
  • Messenger suggestions for people you may know
  • Download photos from posts or Messenger conversations
