Google+ Hits The iPad

Posted Jul 11, 2012

This past May, Google revamped Google+ for the iPhone by adding full bleed photos and new visual elements.  Now Google+ for the iPhone and iPad has several new features listed below:

  • Pinch and expand posts right in your stream to add your comments
  • Use two fingers to drag a post from your stream to easily re-share it
  • Start a Hangout from your iPad and stream it to your TV using AirPlay

You can now create and manage events on Google+ through the iPhone.  This includes the ability to post a comment, upload photos, etc.  You can also start a video chat Hangout from anywhere using your iPhone and iPad.  Make sure to have your ringing notifications on so your friends know how to join the Hangout.

To start a Hangout from the main menu, add a few friends and tap “Start.”  The app can ring their phones and if someone misses the Hangout, they can ring you back with a single tap.

You can download Google+ from the App Store (version 3.0).
