The Google Plus app has been updated to version 4.3 and it comes with a lot of new features, like the ability to edit photos across multiple devices, new filters, and the ability to backup local folders.
Google Plus photo editing now saves edited photos as a new file, instead of replacing the original one. This means you can edit the same photo on multiple devices at the same time or you can even revert to the original version.
The app also comes with a lot of new filters and enhancements, which turns it into a versatile photo editing app. The 4.3 update is really huge and you will notice the multitude of photo editing options it now has and that’s not all.
Google Plus 4.3 really makes us think it’s going to replace the Gallery app in the future, as it’s now doing everything that can be done with the Gallery and much more. The Google Plus Photos app now shows you all your photos by default in the All tab, which can be easily scrolled down thanks to the new scrollbar on the right.
Along with all the other updates, you can also now backup your local folder and not just the photos taken with the camera. Head over to the app’s settings and you will find a checkbox that allows the app to backup all your local folders. This includes even photos received on WhatsApp or any other app.
Unfortunately the app isn’t yet available on the Play Store, but you can update it manually by downloading the APK and sideloading it on your device. While this may sound complicated, it’s actually really simple. Head over here to download and install the Google Plus 4.3 APK.
