google+-update-locationFans of Google’s social networking service, Google+, were probably pretty stoked to hear the company was rolling out some major changes to the service earlier this year that would makes changes to its layout, photos and incorporation of Hangouts. Today, Google is announcing it’s adding some new features to Google+ for Android

Google+ for Android will come with a total of five new features, one of which is removing Messenger support within the application in favor of Hangouts. The reason for its removal is due to Messenger working across platforms as well as the Web, making Messenger completely obsolete.

Aside from the removal of Messenger to make way for Hangouts, the new Google+ for Android will allow users to switch accounts and pages, will fully support Google Apps for Business and will allow photos and videos stored in Google Drive to be available for use. Location sharing is also being incorporated in today’s update, which should make former Google Latitude users extremely happy.

Google+ Android users can proceed to Google Play to update their application in order to take advantage of today’s new updates. Considering the Google+ Android app will now support Hangouts, we think it’s probably in your best interest to do so right away.
