Google+ updated for Android with hashtags and web snippets

Google's social network Google+ has been getting tons of attention lately from the team at Mountain View. The web interface was completely overhauled this week with a fresh new look and improved features, and today they've pushed an update for the Android app bringing some awesome web features to mobile. The big one for me is web snippets. You know -- the extra information shown when you share a story or a link.

Google Games is a unified gaming platform under development

We have more news today regarding Google tossing everything into one basket. Yesterday Google consolidated all of their offerings such as the Android Market, Google Music, Video, and Books, placing them all under the new Google Play branding, and even launched the new Play Store for Android.

Google pushes security fixes for Wallet, Google+, and Authenticator

A few weeks back, a Google Wallet vulnerability was found making both rooted and untampered devices with the application vulnerable to hackers.

Google is pushing three security fixes today that not only allow for prepaid card usage with Wallet, but offer core system fixes.

President Obama to appear on Google+ for post State of the Union Interview

Who wants to see President Obama live on a Google+ hangout? If you do then next week you are in luck because Obama will be doing exactly that. After trying to be more "social" the White House made a Google+ account last week. I was confused when I saw it but now it appears that the White House will be holding a post State of the Union interview with the President live with a Google+ Hangout.
