Today during the Google I/O 2012 keynote, Google announced it’s rolling out a tablet-friendly version of Google+, both for Android devices and the iPad.
The revelation was made by Vic Gundotra, Google’s SVP of Engineering. This new tablet-friendly version of G+ will feature Google Hangout compatibility, and will redesign the way posts from friends in users’ circles are displayed. During the keynote, it was demonstrated how posts by people that are gaining popularity will be larger than other posts. Gundotra also said — but didn’t show — there will be other re-designed features like a new ribbon bar and profile designs. Android tablet compatibility is coming out today, while the iPad version will arrive “very soon.”
Gundotra also revealed the following milestones. Google+ now has over 150 million monthly active users, with over 50 percent of them signing in every day, with the average user session being over 60 minutes across Google. Finally, Gundtora said there are now more people using G+ from mobile platforms than from desktop computers.
