Google+ Gets Updated to Version 4.2.0, Gets Photo Tab and Auto Awesome Movie (Video)
There’s a fresh Google+ update in town and it has already started rolling out as the build version 22.214.171.124778941. The update focuses on the photo area and it includes Auto Awesome Movie and better photo searches.
As far as the UI goes, there’s a new photo menu available once you tap on Photos and you’ll find shortcuts to Auto Awesome, Albums, Videos, Photos of You and more. One can swipe between Camera and Highlights easily now and can also search quicker. In the meantime Google’s Vic Gundotra also announced some enhancements brought to Hangouts and Snapseed.
Back to the Google+ update, the Auto Awesome options for pics now include full size photo backups and background syncing, low and high intensity options and eraser tools. A cool feature here is that once you take videos on your smartphone and upload them to Google+, the big G will stabilize them for you and even choose a soundtrack. You can download the app from here if you’re into sideloading.
