If you’ve recently updated your Google+ app for iOS or Android (you have the app, right?), then you’ve likely noticed some huge improvements added earlier this week.
If you are already using the Snapseed Photo Editing App (my personal favorite), you’ve likely noticed that you can post photos directly from the app onto your Google+ profile; the Google+ API still isn’t public to most other applications so you can’t update it other than doing it directly.
Here’s how Google announced the changes on the Google+ blog.
Today we’re launching new versions of Google+ for iPhone and Android. Here’s a quick look at the improvements in four key areas: photos, posts, profiles and communities.
The changes include things like rotating, cropping, and adding filters. In addition, there is now more text included in the snippets from Google+ in the app and you can more easily click over to the content, and you can more easily share your profile. Lastly, you can also now manage your communities from the app.
The changes make the app far more functional.
In addition, have you checked out your Google+ profile lately? Then you’ve likely seen that cover photos on your profile can now be more than TWICE as big, giving you significant real estate to advertise anything you’re interested in promoting. The photos can now be as big as up to 2120px by 1192px.
