Google+ Android app updated, gets in-built Snapseed photo enhancements

google-plus_snapseed_mainGoogle is releasing a major Google+ Android app update today. The update, which will go live later today, will for the first time bring Snapseed’s basic photo enhancements directly in the Google+ app.

Among other changes, now more post text will be visible in stream. The latest update also brings ability to swipe albums Inline, share your current location on your Google+ profile, ability to adjust the volume of community posts in your Home stream and more.

Check out the detailed change-log below:


  • Do basic edits like rotate and crop, as well as select filters like Drama and Retrolux
  • Adjust saturation, contrast, brightness and lots more by sliding your fingers up-and-down, then left-and-right
  • Single tap at any time to compare your creation with the original


  • Posts include more text up front—from the original message, and from comments
  • Tapping video, photo or link attachments takes you directly to a watch page, lightbox or website
  • Image previews are rarely cropped, so you’ll see portrait photos (for instance) in all their glory
  • Key actions like +1, reshare and comment are displayed more prominently in each post
  • You can swipe through photo albums inline


  • Display your current location on your Google+ profile
  • When someone with permission visits your profile, for example, they’ll see your current whereabouts underneath your name


  • The ability to adjust the volume of community posts in your Home stream
  • The option to invite people to a community, or reshare items with a community
  • Member search, content moderation, and report-remove-ban support for community managers
