Google+ App now Supports Communities

Google has just updated its Google+ App for iOS and Android. As was expected since their first announced the Google+ communities, the app now has full support for them, as well as:

  • Ability to subscribe to any circle for notifications 
  • Ability to indicate how many guests you're bringing to an event
  • Support for time zones in Events
  • Basic profile editing
  • New compose UI for easier sharing
  • New visual stream design
  • Discover people and topics more easily using ‘Find people’

I don't recall the App having those colorful icons in the bottom bar... and I find it really awkward that Google took the time to implement an entire new "communities" section... and forgot to take care of the multiple account without forcing us to signout/signin again!

Also, the notifications placed on the side menu, beneath all the options.... it doesn't seem like it's the right place for them. Maybe they could implement a similar section, on the right side of the screen, for notifications alone?

Well, give it a try and let us know what you think.
