In May, Google redesigned the Google+ app for iPhone, adding full bleed photos and bold visual elements. Today, Google is introducing new features for iPhone and an iPad.
The Google+ app for iPad was designed with the device in mind. Your stream styles content based on popularity, type and orientation. Google has also added new ways to interact with the app:
- Pinch and expand posts right in your stream to add your comments
- Use two fingers to drag a post from your stream to easily re-share it
- Start a Hangout from your iPad and stream it to your TV using AirPlay
Now you can create and manage Events on Google+, right from your iPhone. Your past event invitations are saved with all the photos and posts shared by your friends.
Now you can start a video chat with up to nine friends anywhere, anytime with Hangouts on iPhone and iPad. Ringing notifications are provided so your friends know to join the Hangout.
To get started, tap "Hangout" from the main menu, add some friends and tap "Start." Google will ring their phones and if someone misses the hangout, they can ring you back with a single tap.
These updates are available now from the App Store (version 3.0)
