Google+ For Android Updated With Hashtags and Link Previews


Today, the Google+ app for Android was updated in the Play Store bring a few notable improvements (besides the usual bug fixes and improved stability). Bringing it closer to the desktop web version, the Android app now has improved sharing features for sharing links from other apps. Just like on the web version, users can now view a web snippets or previews when sharing links inside the app. Also added was support for hashtags but please — use them sparingly. The last thing we need are statuses #hashtagging #every #word #in #the #sentence, something that’s plagued Instagram as of late. Proper hashtag etiquette says a hashtag is to be used as a phrase or one word conclusion to the status you’re posting. For example: “Ate a triple, bacon Krispy Kreme cheeseburger today. #YOLO.” Now get out there, and have some fun!
