Google recently made some behind the scenes changes to Google+ and today the company gave its social media platform’s Android app a cosmetic overhaul, aligning it with its new Material Design gospel. The revamped software features a flat layout with bright almost Kool-Aid red accents that really pop.

In addition to a spiffed up interface, there’s a retooled Photos section that manages to keep things simple, just the way we like it! Whether Google+ is your preferred social media hub, or an unused icon resting on your phone’s home screen, you can now download the latest version of this visually improved app directly from Google Play.
