Google updated its Google+ for Android app today, and the most notable tweak allows users to join Hangouts on Air from their mobile devices.
That is not all: Teens can now create and join Hangouts from their mobile devices too. Apparently, they could not before, but Google now lets them take advantage of the social network’s premier video-chat feature on an Android-based smartphone or tablet.
Additional updates include:
- – Floating timestamp in photos view
- – Shortcuts for post creation
- – Ability to report abuse in Events
Screenshots of the updated app are below.
