Google is rolling out a new update of Google+ mobile app on Android devices. The update is filled with fun and useful new features.
The coolest new feature is that you can now add animated snowfall effect to any image on demand by just shaking your device. Shake it again to save it!
Search box has been enhanced. You now see results from all categories like posts, photos, people, pages and communities. You can filter results by these categories.
Notifications have received a major update. You can now configure the app to only ping you about updates from certain people. This should help folks who get too many notifications.
Users also now get filtering options in What’s Hot section. They can now get access to content focused on specific categories.
There is also a surprise new feature. Google said:
Now when you +1 posts in the stream, you’ll see something lovely.
As usual, the update is being rolled out in a phased manner.
