Notifications that sync across devices, and a new Android app



Starting today, Google+ notifications are much easier to use across mobile and desktop. In particular:



- When you read a notification on one device, we'll mark it as read on your other devices

- Likewise: dismissing a notification (with a swipe or a click) does so everywhere, so you can say goodbye to annoying repeats



We've also updated the look and feel of Google+ notifications, including:



- A new bell icon (in the Google Bar, and in the mobile apps) that lets you know if anything's waiting for you

- An updated notifications tray that separates unread from previously-read items



We're rolling out these notifications improvements gradually — first on Android and the web, then on iOS. In the meantime, we're also releasing a new Android app that incorporates a lot of your feedback. For example:



- You can now delete your photos from the Photos view

- Tapping into a post shows the number of +1's, comments and reshares

- The left-hand menu design is now more consistent with other Google apps



Visit Google Play for the Android update (v4.01, http://goo.gl/ruuHW), look for the new notifications icon over the next few days, and let us know what you think!
