Google+ for Android updated, finally brings re-sharing of posts

google plus

Google+ for Android has received a feature update today that finally allows users to re-share posts they find interesting with others. This had been the biggest gripe to date with the Google+ Android application, and my stream is filled with literally hundreds of users rejoicing over the news.

Don’t care about the ability to re-share? The 1.0.6 update brings the following additional changes:

  • Reshare a post
  • App now available in 38 languages
  • Incremental improvements to notification reliability
  • Clearer Instant Upload options in the initial setup dialog

Bug fixes:

  • Eliminate Instant Upload duplicates on HTC models
  • Fixed “No name” issue in Huddle
  • Hidden 1:1 Huddles now reappear when new messages are sent
  • Fixed issue with notifications count changing when switching from portrait to landscape
  • Other performance fixes and minor UI tweaks
  • Ability to create a new circle from the “Circles” destination
The 1.0.6 update is one of the biggest to date and adds a feature that Android users have been asking for since version 1.0 was released. To get this feature, as well as all the others listed above, head on over to the market and update your Google+ application. And if you happen to not be on Google+ yet (what’s wrong with you!?!?), hit us up for an invitation in the comments. Or just go ahead and click on this link.

    This is definitely quite the update. Adding resharing is something that’s been needed since day one; glad to finally see it. Also pretty stoked about the bugfix for the duplicate photos thing – that’s something I noticed this past weekend and really thought I was just going crazy :)

      My thoughts exactly.

      Yeah I don’t expect everyone to leave Facebook just yet since Google+ is still in the beta phase plus is only 18+ at the moment so when the official one comes out we will get more.
