Yesterday, Google introduced its latest tablet called Nexus 7 and a media player named Nexus Q at the I/O 2012 keynote targeting Apple’s iPad and Apple TV respectively. Meanwhile, the company also demonstrated a new version of Google+ for iPad which according to Google’s executives, will be launching “very soon”, reports 9to5Mac. Last month, a new version of Google+ was released for iPhone which brought features like gestural navigation, fullscreen media and face-to-face video chat. Now, Google believes that an iPad optimized version will have an even “powerful impact on community engagement”.
From Google’s blog entry:
A year ago we started a small project called Google+—to bring friends and family closer together, and to inspire new connections through meaningful conversation. Today more than 250 million people have upgraded to Google+, and we want to give thanks. To you. It’s your support and your voice that give the service soul, and we’re grateful.
Of course, our tablet app isn’t just bigger, like our mobile app isn’t just smaller. It’s designed with the device in mind, and it includes:
- A beautiful stream that styles content based on popularity, type and orientation
- A “lean back” Hangouts experience that’s great for the couch or common room
- Crisper text, fuller photos and easily-tappable actions like +1 and comment
Google+ version 3.0 for Android phones and tablets has already been released while the iPad update will be released in the App Store pretty soon. We’ll be sure to let you know once it goes live. Stay tuned!
