Google announced the launch of a new update for its Google+ Android app to version 7.0.0. The update has begun rolling out, and will continue over the next day or two.

"This version includes two of our most requested Android fixes and a number of additional updates," says Luke Wroblewski in a Google+ update (via 9to5Google).

The update includes (via Wroblewski):

- 69 bugs fixes

- 14 accessibility issues addressed

- Automatically hide the bottom tab bar when scrolling (note: not on Notifications screen yet)

- The home stream now remembers your position when you return to it (after going to a different screen like Notifications)

- Search now displays autocomplete suggestions as you type

- If you have no Collections or Communities visible on your profile, we include a prompt for you to add one
