Google+ upgrades - now everyone can be indifferent about it
Some of you might have been using Google+, the underwhelming new social network, for the past three months. Some of you might have signed up, given it a couple of weeks and then deleted your account. We don’t blame you.
But Google have been looking to make it all nice and better and have announced nine new improvements to it today. The main one is that is has gone from ‘field trial’ status to ‘beta’ – with signups available to everyone.
Additionally, the search feature has been improved, and so has Hangouts, the live, multi-user video chat service. Apparently you can now do a Hangout from a mobile device and the Google+ Android app has already been updated (the iOS update is coming soon).
So pile in everyone, but don’t go using the video chat feature for the wrong reasons eh?
