The Google+ app is getting a "brand new version" on Android

Unfortunately for the company, Google+ never quite received the widespread adoption they may have hoped for, prompting them to ease or eliminate numerous platform's former restrictions and mandatory integrations over time.

Google+ may have fallen off the radar for most people, but it's actually been improving a lot over the a year ago. Leo Deegan, the engineering manager for Google+, has just announced that the company will soon release a "brand new version" of the app.

But the net result looks similar to what the Pixel 2 can do, allowing users to insert polygonal chickens, robots, and dinosaurs into scenes (sadly, the branded experiences from the Pixel 2 aren't available).

However, Deegan says, since this is a rewrite and engineers are still ironing out different bugs, users may encounter a number of "known issues", such as when leaving a comment on a post causes a full refresh of the post to include your comment.

The app won't be changing much visually but this code rewrite will pave the way for the Google+ Android app team to "build new features on a modern tech stack". Oh yeah, also spam comments-a.k.a. the plague of Google's social network-are apparently being more seriously addressed in this update. We haven't seen a new version of the Google+ APK land just yet, though it's possible these improvements may not require one to take effect-Deegan's post does say "enabling" rather than "updating". That said, if you're still an active Google+ user, this new app update may be worth trying out despite a few rough edges. At this time information is still lacking, but once we can confirm seeing these changes in action, we'll be sure to document them.
