Despite some folks declaring it clinically dead, Google+ recently received a new feature known as Stories that lets users share artsy images of places they’ve been while geotagging the locations they’ve visited. Think of it as a way to create a virtual scrapbook for your next vacation. Google said that its new app would be available sometime this week and today appears to be the day. Now available to download from Google Play, the refreshed software also features an updated menu and quick hangout chat access and directions to friends who share their location with you. So there you have it folks. Google+ is alive and well and ready to share your latest adventures.
