Are you an Android user who dabbles in Google+? Then you’ll appreciate this new feature that Google turned on recently which allows users to push Android app installs straight from the stream to their phones. It’s a pretty cool way to try out apps that have been recommended by users in your circles without leaving the page.
Google+ arguably attracts more Android users than any other platform, as the social network is integrated (and preinstalled) on Android in many cases. As the number of Android apps grows, and the difficulty of finding good ones increases, it’s important that Google implements features into Google+ to make discovery — and acquisition — easier on the user.
Now, when you click on the “Install” button in the Google+ feed, it will pop up a list of compatible devices associated with your Google account and allow you to push it to your phone. Simple and easy.
If you want to give it a try, head to Google+ and paste the link of an Android app into your status box.
