Google+ Android App Update Drops Messenger in Favor of Hangouts

Google+ Android App Update Drops Messenger in Favor of Hangouts

The behemoth known as Google is looking ahead instead of backwards in time. In a series of decisions that are critical in its engagement with its user base, it has added some features while letting go of others. Google+ for Android update will bring along with it a host of exciting features. First of all, account changes and page transformation will be a cinch on the Version 4.1. The applications for business purposes are intact and they even allow public collective viewing. Ordinary consumers may peruse files from Google Drive. Supplementary regional controls will be a valuable asset. Meanwhile, Messenger is on its way out of the window. However, Hangouts is in. Countless other updates will follow and the best thing to do would be to wait and see. 

The Hangouts facility allowed for messaging to take place with such perfection that Google Messenger had to be tossed in the trash can of history. Android too will be removed from the iOS app. But this will take place later on. Google had been reluctantly tolerating Messenger in the presence of Hangouts. Now it has no excuse. The bevy of new features on Google will amaze and amuse by their utility and use-value. Google provides services to most of the global village of tech-savvy individuals. And while it profits in the process, it deserves every cent. This is because the facilities it renders are very sophisticated and allow the modern world to function efficiently and smoothly.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
