Google+ Android App Update Drops Messenger in Favor of Hangouts

Google is shaking things up. Google+ for Android app brings 5 updates including the disposal of its Messenger service in favor of Hangouts, improved location sharing, Google Drive access and more.

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.
