Everyone knows about Google+, the new social networking initiative from this software giant. The Google+ society is expanding and growing by the day, but how many users have an Android app available for the service? We are going to take a deeper look at the Google+ application for Android and all the benefits it brings to users.
Hangouts bring conversations to life with photos, emoji, and even group video calls for free. You can connect with friends across computers, Android and Apple devices. You can even turn one-on-one or group conversations into live face-to-face video calls with up to 10 people at once. Catch up with friends and family even when you’re on the go, all for free.
The new version of the Google+ app for Android brings you:

The Hangouts application enables you to:
- tell more with photos and emoji
- find out when other users in the Hangout see your message and/or are typing a reply
- turn every Hangout in a video call with up to ten friends
- Hangouts are synchronized on all of your devices so you can continue them whenever and wherever you like
