Following the release of the latest operating system for Android, Ice Cream Sandwich, Google has released an updated version of its Google+ App for Android.

The most notable updates that come along with this version of Google+ for Android are:

  • Completely new app and new visual design
  • Battery life improvements
  • Navigation and performance improvements
  • Significant notifications improvements
  • Brand new posting UI
  • Add people to a circle from circle profiles

The new design is extremely similar to that of the iOS version of Google+, providing a consistency that the service hasn’t had platform-wide since its launch.


It seems like the company has focused heavily on design the past few months, with Google Reader getting an overhaul today, as well as upcoming changes to Gmail.
