In addition, there are also improvements in the photographs. Now with Instant Upload function, can upload pictures with the original resolution and see and explore spherical images (Photo Sphere) in versions prior to Android 4.1.

Another novelty of this new version 3.3.0 is the ability to edit some things of the profile from our device, such as biography, date of birth, and other basic information.

Google+ has also improved the hangouts as it has reduced the bandwidth needed to carry it out, which allows videoconferencing with slow connections, and added integration with Google Now to send birthday greetings more easily.

But that’s not all. The social network now supports animated GIF allows subscribing to any circle to receive notifications, allows to set events for different time zones and adding a widget on the lockscreen in devices running Android 4.2 or higher.
