Google+ App Updated, Customizable Streams and Other Enhancements Included

 

If you are one of the lucky 10 million members of Google+, you’ll want to jump into the market now and see if you have an update available.  You should.  The update is an experience enhancer really; nothing major, but a lot of stuff that needed to be done, like customizable streams.  The update also fixes some issues that people were having with Swype, changes the way invites to Huddles work, and adds some performance tweaks.

Full changelog:

  1. Customize the main stream view to show streams from individual circles
  2. Fixed some issues encountered by users with the Swype keyboard
  3. Set permissions for who can start a huddle with you (Anyone, Your Circles, Extended Circles)
  4. If someone you’ve never huddled with before invites you to a group huddle, you can now dismiss the invitation
  5. New UI allows adding multiple people or entire circles to a huddle
  6. Set photo as wallpaper
  7. Performance improvements and bug fixes throughout the app

    I have more invites to go around, anyone? A like is appreciated!
    If you reply to this post with your email I will get it in my inbox 
    and once you get your invite you can remove /modify your post if you wish… 

    Unless everyone that wants one has an invite? 
    Otherwise I will do what I can through the weekend.

    Anyone with the update figured out how to set a pic as the background yet? Can’t find how to do it grrrrrr

  • My spouse and i felt joyous when Edward could deal with his research through the entire precious recommendations he received in your blog. It’s not at all simplistic to just find yourself releasing methods which often some others might have been selling. And we all do understand we have the blog owner to appreciate for that. The type of explanations you made, the simple web site menu, the relationships you can aid to promote – it’s got everything superb, and it’s really helping our son in addition to us reckon that the concept is excellent, and that’s exceptionally indispensable. Thanks for everything!

    Welcome to my site cymbalta remeron.

  • This update isn’t showing up on my Thunderbolt (running CM7). On the market site it actually says it’s incompatible. Anyone else getting this?

    I briefly saw the updated Google+ app in the Market, but when clicking on it, update button disappeared and Market now showing the same version I already have loaded. Wonder if the update turned out to be a bad one?

    Really wish people would stop complaining this service. It’s still in “field testing” so of course there are going to be some bugs. By time they open this without an invite most of these issues will be taken care of. Just be patient and stop crying about a service that has been out for only 2 weeks!

  • I’m not happy with having to okay that application will know my location.  I’m not going to use on my phone until they remove that requirement.  Any chance?

    • Anonymous

      None, since several features use location data.

      • So that I’m not paranoid… what features?  Any possibility that it can remain out of public view?  In other words if I post something in Google+ from my Droid is it going to say where I am? 

        • Anonymous

          It uses location for place check-in, similar to how Facebook and Foursquare do it. You have to take the action to check in, though. It also uses location to show public posts from people nearby. You won’t show up on that list unless you post something publicly and also attach your current location.

  • The new circles option is good, but I wish they would let us choose which circles show up in the “All Circles” stream.

    • Then it wouldn’t be an “All Circles” stream now wouldn’t it?

      • No, no it wouldn’t. I would prefer the go with the term “Stream”, like on the website, instead of “All Circles”.

  • Really wish they’d open it up to google apps account users.

      The official announcement is that they will, but want to make sure its just right first.  This is of course with no official date.  At least best I could tell from the announcement/blog post.
