Google has today brought forth a significant update for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users of its social network app: Google+. Google announced its Plus service, aimed to compete with the likes of Facebook, back in June, and it’s been in and out of news ever since. Google is possibly the only candidate capable of toppling Facebook, and after the "hello, goodbye" of its other iOS social app Photovine, the Big G has focused its efforts on improving the app for iDevice wielding Google+ users.
If you are a social media fanatic, then chances are high that you have seen users posting images from Instagram, which is an app exclusive to the iPhone that allows you to add effects to your images and post them on different social networks. Google, apparently wants in on the action.
Online search giant and social networking aspirant Google has updated its iOS client for its social network, Google+. The new update includes many new features that bring the client up to par with its Android counterpart, as well as usability improvements right across the board.
Do you love Google+? Would you like to have it integrated right into your operating system? A few weeks a go, we featured GClient, a small Google+ client that can be launched from the Windows taskbar, but what if you're an OS X user and would like to access the site from your menu bar? With this new app, that will become a reality.
The Google+ iOS app has been updated today to support the previously “missing” iOS devices, the iPod touch and the iPad, just weeks after the original iPhone-only app was unveiled. All iOS users are urged to download this update as soon as possible from their device’s App Store or iTunes.
YouTube and Google+, are two Google properties, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that both should be integrated as closely as possible to one another. +Hangouts, Google+’s group video chat feature, has since its inception allowed YouTube video to be played back within video conversations allowing all participants to view the same video simultaneously. It now seems that support for YouTube Live, YouTube’s live streaming service, is being added to +Hangouts, allowing live events to be played back in real time as well.
We've all seen Google+ and how efficient it works inside the web browser, but what if you want to use it straight from the desktop. GClient is the first ever desktop client for Google+, currently Windows-only, and allows users to perform most essential Google+ tasks right from a small window.
After weeks of waiting, Apple has finally approved the official native Google+ app for the iPhone, which represents a giant leap forward from the web-only experience that was available up until now. This marks yet another beginning step in Google's quest to dominate the social networking world.
