This morning, Google is pushing out a staged rollout of an updated Google+ application for Android through Google Play. The update isn’t your ordinary run of the mill bug fixer, though. Inside this update, Google is looking to take advantage of a few features that are uncommonly used on phones supporting the software, such as Daydream and Android Beam.
Once this update goes live for all, users will have the ability to share photos instantly thanks to NFC and a quick tap of the devices’ backs. In addition, photos on Google+ can now be used with Android’s Daydream feature, which is essentially a screen saver for devices while they are charging and docked. There are a few more features added in, so check out the changelog below.
- Photos now supports Android Beam, so you can share photos via NFC
- Photos also supports Daydream, so you can view your pics in screensaver mode when charging or docking your device
- Individual photo details are now available in the drop-down menu
- Opening “Locations” will automatically refresh your friends’ locations on the map
