Google+ mobile app revamped on iOS, Android update “coming soon”

Google has updated of its official Google+ app to more closely mirror the look and feel of the newly redesigned Google+ web site.

According to a post on the official Google blog, many of the new Google+ design elements are now reflected in the design of the mobile app. Cosmetic changes include new fonts, larger profile pictures and a full-bleed display for photos. Google has also updated the way the app displays conversation flows in a user’s stream, added optical cues to draw attention to more recent posts and moved the +1 button to a set position at the top of the user interface.

Ironically, the new version of the Google+ mobile app is available now on iOS, but the Android version is described as “coming in a few weeks.”

The company redesigned its Google+ social networking service in April to add drag and drop navigation, full bleed photos and videos and update the way conversations and discussions were grouped into user’s activity streams.
