Google+ for Android is getting itself a new upgrade in the Google Play Store that changes a few interesting things. For starters, the folks at El Goog have implemented a new notifications tray for the app. The new tray slides in from the right and is pulled up by pressing the indicator in the upper right-hand corner. This setup more closely mirrors notifications on the web and puts more emphasis on them, so this change makes a lot of sense.

Users can now add a link whenever they create a post, something that has long been part of the web experience but is finally coming over to mobile. Most people were fine with simple text links, but this new functionality allows us to automatically pull thumbnails from whatever site was linked. Finally, folks who manage Google+ communities will be happy to know that more moderation features are in tow. The update awaits you at this link so be sure to give it a go whenever you find the time.
