Google+ is getting serious about photography. As announced last week at I/O, Google's social network is becoming much more image-centric with its latest update. To match the new web version of Google+, Google has released a completely revamped Android app.
Version 4.0 of the app automates many of its features. Google described the new tools in the official announcement:
Aside from the automatic tools, Google+'s new app for Android will also come with a ton of customizable photo edit options from Snapseed — Nik Software's popular mobile app for Android and iOS.
Other updates in the new Google+ app include location services so you can track your friends' physical locations — "making it easier to make plans and meet up" says Google, purposely clarifying that this feature is not intended to be used for creepy purposes. Google+'s information stream has also been improved so users can read news articles and watch videos without leaving the app.
