Google+ App for Android & iOS Gets Support for PagesBy: Josh Wolford - October 11, 2012
Google has shipped an update to both the Android and iOS version of their Google+ app to include one of the most requested features, according to the company.
Now, on both iOS and Android, mobile users can interact with pages – that means post as their page and comments as the page. Previously, the Google+ app only allowed users to post from their personal profiles.
“Today we’re rolling out v3.2 of the Google+ app to Android and iOS; both versions include one of our most highly-requested features: support for Google+ pages. This gives page owners the ability to post, comment, and interact with their followers directly from their mobile device,” said Google’s Anish acharya in a Google+ post.
Both platforms received a few more updates from Google, but they differ. On Android, Google has updated the “find people” feature to make people and topic discovery easier. They’ve also redesigned the home-screen widget for the app.
On iOS, Google caught iPhone users up to speed with previous Android updates. iOS users now have the ability to edit posts once they’ve been published, and can also search for people and posts across the network.
Google+ for iOS has also been optimized for the iPhone 5 and iOS 6.
