G+ Android Update 7.2.0

G+ Android Update 7.2.0
Today we’re starting to roll out our third Google+ Android app update of the year. This release has several bug fixes and three new features. Specifically:

* 29 bugs fixed
* 10 accessibility issues addressed
* Faster and safer browsing of Web sites (info below)
* Search history and autocomplete
* Tap on the bottom bar to scroll to the top of Collections, Communities, and Notifications

When you tap on a Web link on Google+ we now use Chrome custom tabs to pre-load Web sites, which makes viewing content much quicker. If you are signed in to a Web site in Chrome, you will also be signed in when you visit the same site in Google+. Other features like saved passwords, autofill, and Tap to Search are also available in custom tabs (http://blog.chromium.org/2015/09/chrome-custom-tabs-smooth-transition_2.html) .

While there’s lots of great reasons to use Chrome custom tabs in Google+, we’ve given you a simple way to turn them off as well. Just un-check “Enable Custom Tabs” in the Google+ Settings menu.

As always more updates are on the way so please keep the ideas & issues coming by using our Send Feedback menu item. Thanks~
