New Version Of Google Plus Android App Released, Gets Reshare Button

Google yesterday released the latest version of its Google + app for Android phones. The new version comes with new, and much neededm features. Google + for Android now allows users to reshare a post, the app now supports 38 languages (shamefully, the world's 4th most spoken language Hindi and all other Indian languages are missing).

It has also tried to fix the problem related to instant uploads, it now offers clearer Instant Upload options in the initial setup dialog.

Warning: If you are using Google+ app on your smartphone or tablet make sure to turn off instant upload feature. If you keep it on all the pictures that you shoot from your devices will be uploaded to your Picasa account. It is very important as you may mistakenly upload private images. One of my friends made the same mistake and uploaded the images of his credit card with CVV number. All he wanted was to take a picture and send it to his wife. So, be careful folks.

The version also fixes numerous bugs including eliminating Instant Upload duplicates on HTC models, fixes 'No name' issue in Huddle, hidden 1:1 huddles now reappear when new msgs are sent, fixed issue with notifications count changing when switching from portrait to landscape. There are minor UI tweaks as well.

You can install Google+ app on your smartphone/tablet by searching for it in the Android Market.

The app doesn't offer full experience of Google+. Feature like Hangout is not available, and you can't share videos from the app. However, you can still do a lot with the app, which you can't do with the browser, such as Huddle.

What features you think are missing from the Google+ app?
