Along with updates to the Google Reader UI and the roll out of the GoogleTV 2.0 update, an update to the Google+ app for Android is live on the market today. The update brings so many changes, Lead Product Manager of Google+ Games and Mobile is calling it a “completely new Google+ app”
The UI has been given a complete overhaul and now seems like it will fit in a little nicer with the impending Ice Cream Sandwich roll out (it also closer resembles the iOS Google+ app UI). Among the other enhancements to the app– improved battery performance, notification improvements, a new posting UI, support for Google Apps users, and the ability to sign out. You can also now add people to a circle from circle profiles.
Android Police notes that the update removes the Google+ widget but Google+ Mobile product manager Punit Soni has confirmed that it will return soon for non-ICS devices. You should see the new Google+ app appearing in the market today. More images and full list of new features below.
