Google Play™

Google+™

Connecting with others is fast, fun and beautiful with Google+. Check status updates, manage your circles and quickly share updates and photos.

Need to touch base with several friends? Google+ Messenger turns separate conversations into a single group chat, so everyone gets on the same page before thumbs get sore.
