Google+ app for iPhone updated with Snapseed filters

Google has released a new version of the Google+ application for iPhone and Android devices, in order to add support for Snapseed filters among others.

After announcing the Nik Collection for Adobe Photoshop, Aperture, and Lightroom users, Google has released a software update for the Google+ application.

The app update can be downloaded on iOS and Android smartphones and tablets. Usually, this would not be such a great deal for photographers. However, this time it is different because the app contains some of the Snapseed filters, which can applied on images before being uploaded on the Google+ social network.

Google+ for iPhone comes packed with support for Snapseed filters

The latest version of Google+ for iPhone is different from the Android one. Users of the Google+ for iPhone are getting editing capabilities, such as rotate and crop. Additionally, they can perform adjustment to contrast, brightness, and saturation, and then apply filters, including Drama and Retrolux.

Android version is less featured than its iOS counterpart

On the other hand, the Android app allows users to view almost the entire photo frame when previewing images. While tapping on attachments, the app takes users directly to the website, lightbox or the watch page, depending on the type of the attachment.

Unfortunately for Android owners, they did not receive support for the aforementioned Snapseed filters. This may sound unusual since Google owns Nik Software, but the situation is far more complicated than that. It takes time to fully absorb a company. Additionally, the iOS app was miles ahead the Android version and it may take a while until the developers will reduce the gap between the two editions.

Google may not confess this, but, since some of Snapseed’s filters are available through Google+, it is only a matter of time until the mobile program will suffer the same fate as the desktop version.

Also, it is worth noting that the search giant has acknowledged that mobile device users can download the fully-featured Snapseed app, since it has not been killed like its desktop counterpart.
