Recently Google iphone app Google+ has just received a hefty update. The key feature of this update is support for Hangouts.
Hangouts is Google’s answer to multiuser video conferencing, Hangouts has seen a lot of use so far, and being able to use in iphone(4/5) is a big step forward. Several days ago Google said the support was coming, and it’s here now.
The new update also rebrands Huddle as messenger, and we can use messenger to send photos now. MacStories has a good look in iphone4, including a preview of how Hangouts performs and new settings for push notifications.
It’s a pity that the Google+ app still hasn’t been optimized for iPad, so our choices remain running the mobile version of the site in Safari or running the blown-up iphone version.
