During their big I/O event yesterday Google announced that a new tablet version of Google+ will be coming to the iPad very soon. As 9to5Mac reports, they even shared some images of the new app – and apparently it won’t be sideways and silly looking if the iPad is in landscape mode.
Here are some of the things Google touted about the tablet app yesterday:
Of course, our tablet app isn’t just bigger, like our mobile app isn’t just smaller. It’s designed with the device in mind, and it includes:
-A beautiful stream that styles content based on popularity, type and orientation
-A “lean back” Hangouts experience that’s great for the couch or common room
-Crisper text, fuller photos and easily-tappable actions like +1 and comment
I enjoy Google+ so I will begin holding my breath now for the ‘very soon’ iPad app release. It’s only been a year since Google+ started up – I’m sure the iPad version just slipped their mind until now.
