When Google unleashes Ice Cream Sandwich, a slew of updated core applications will come along with it. The folks at Android Police have managed to get their paws on the goods, extracted directly from the Nexus Prime. Of note is an overhauled version of Google Plus for Android, listed as version 2.0. The version number shows a significant update can be expected. One of the immediately noticeable changes is the decision to change the name of the service’s group messaging functionality. Once huddles, group chat will be known simply as “Chords” moving forward.

We expect to see significantly revamped version of many of the apps included in Google’s Mobile Suite when Ice Cream Sandwich launches, but unfortunately the postponement of next week’s CTIA event leaves the timing of the reveal up in the air.
