Google+ updates with instant hangouts – one tap goes from text to video chat

Make no mistake, Google+ is gunning for Facebook. When a third-party app is beating most of your own apps on the Android Market, it's hard not to. But with the latest addition to the ever-growing featureset of Google+, there's one more important distinction between the two networks. You can now switch from a textual chat or comment interface to a live Hangout video chat at any time from a status update or post, whether it's on the web or the Android app. Beatboxing is not compulsory.

Google+ photo tagging now features automatic facial recognition

Google's social network site just keeps getting better and better these days. Now I know when you read automatic facial recognition you feel like John Connor from Terminator might hunt you down and recognize your face but this new system is completely opt-in. This feature is being called "Find My Face" and will make photo tagging even easier in Google+ land.

Google Apps users can now join Google+

One of the biggest complaints for the recently launched social network service was the fact that Google Apps users weren't able to join. This being the large group of schools and businesses that actually pay Google to use their Apps and services. Google's recently announced more than 40 million users are on Google+ but now all those enterprise and Google Apps users will be able to join the hangout party.

Google Plus adds hashtags and real-time search [Video]

Google+ is in the news today. In a rare appearance by engineering SVP Vic Gundotra himself, today's Google Plus update will introduce real-time search and full working hashtag support, much like how Twitter currently is. The new update is said to be rolling out in stages today and I've just tried it with no such luck but we can expect to see it available for everyone shortly. Real-time search is a big one here as shown in the video when you search for say, Androids, you get full results as well as a notification when something new is posted and can simply click to see the latest Android news (or come to Android Community of course).
