Google has just pushed out yet another update for the popular Google+ Android application with some much needed improvements. The list is quite large and a good start indeed but the last update aimed to fix notifications but those are still a bit buggy for me. One of the biggest improvements I see right away is the +mentions now autofill from your Circles. Something that worked great online but was not as easy on the mobile application.
They claimed to have added stability and improvements to the notification system so hopefully that works better than before, support for over 38 new languages for the Android app have also been integrated. The biggest improvement in my opinion is that we now can do +mentions that populate from your circles. On the mobile app they had to be in your Google contacts until now, that one one of my biggest concerns.
Here is the full changelog:
-Improved notifications reliability
-“_add to circle” notifications shown in bulk
-Share stream posts to individual people
-Clicking a +mention takes you to the person’s profile
-+mentions now autofill from your Circles
-Stream no longer resets to top when screen is rotated
-Start a 1:1 huddle from a person’s profile or a group huddle from a circle profile
-Hide 1:1 huddles
-Clickable links in huddles
-Improved autocomplete when adding a person to a huddle
