Google+ App Updated To v6.8 To Begin Rolling Out The New UI [APK Download] [Update: Force New UI]

The Google+ app has gone through more UI revisions than Android itself, and the latest one is starting to roll out now. Version 6.8 of Google+ is starting to show up in the Play Store, and of course, we've got the APK below if you don't want to wait. Be aware, installing this APK won't immediately kick you over to the new design. It looks like this is a server-side switch that's only active for some users.

Google Search Android App Learns How To Stream Content From Other Apps

Google does things—a lot of things. For two years now, the company has been indexing the content inside of apps. This way it can point you to other Android apps when they can better provide answers to your query than a general website. Google says 40% of searches done on Android bring up app content.

But there remained two issues with this approach. One, Google could only display information from apps that had matching content available on the web. Two, opening results required installing said app if you hadn't done so already.

Now Google will begin showing content that exists only in apps, and it will start offering you the option to stream apps that you don't have installed.

Outlook App Updated To Version 2.0 With A Few Material Design Visual Tweaks And Not Much Else

Microsoft isn't wavering in its laudable multi-platform support - at this point the company is beating out both Apple and Google in its support for customers on all mobile operating systems. The free mobile version of Outlook first came to the Play Store earlier this year. It's advanced to version 2.0 after a few months, and the developers have added... actually, not much. Certainly not that Sunrise Calendar integration that users of the abandoned app are probably looking for. But we do get a new UI.

[Update: It's Back] Google Removes Another App From The Play Store For Dodgy Reasons, This Time It's Tasker

This isn't the first time we've reported about Google's deplorable policies for removing apps from the Play Store. One day you're the developer of an extremely popular app, distributing it to thousands of users, the next it's poof gone with no warning, no explanation, and no way to easily communicate with the team to understand what has gone wrong.

The latest victim is the famous and ridiculously powerful Tasker app. Tasker has been available on Android since time immemorial and has made many a user extremely happy with its extensive featureset. Want to turn on the popcorn machine when you yell "movie time!" at your phone?

It's been a while since we've seen a true update to Google Fit – about 6 months if you don't count a version that turned up in the final M Developer Preview.

The main app also went through a couple of changes, but they're nothing to get excited about. However, check back later for a pretty big teardown – some big things are happening.
