Android app gets additional tweaks

Google has announced plans to update the web, iOS and Android versions of Google+ with better notifications. Google's Vic Gundotra says that notifications should be "much easier to use across mobile and desktop." Some planned changes include a bell icon for letting users know when updates are available, and a tray for managing read and unread items.

The flagship Android app is receiving some extra attention, such as the ability to delete images from within the Photos view. The menu system, meanwhile, has been improved to make it "more consistent with other Google apps." Stream content will automatically update whenever the app is launched.

Google says that the new notification system will roll out over the next few days. The Android app has already been updated, but without the notification changes.
