Google+ App For Android Updated

Mountain View based technology giant Google Inc. has dished out a brand new Android app for its social networking site Google Plus on Monday.

According to the company, the new offering comes along with a much cleaner interface, a bunch of new and improved functionalities, as well as the ability to enhance the battery life.

The Google+ Android app version 2.1 is now available for free download at the Android Market, the company confirmed.

The update was first announced by Google's Ben Eidelson on his personal Google+ account. He also stated that the team behind the app worked in unison with the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich developers to make the new app as good as possible.

"So you'll see the same attention to beauty and simplicity in our new design," Eidelson writes, according to a report by PC World.

Apart from featuring a revamped interface, the new version of the app also features larger images in the site's image gallery. Now the overall look of the photos on the app, according to analysts, resembles closely with the Metro User Interface from the Windows maker Microsoft.
