Google+ got a pretty small update this week. It jumped up to version 4.7, and it brings in some very minor changes. Our guess is that it’s mostly bug fixes, seeing as Google hasn’t given us a changelog, once again. If you notice anything new let us know.

This week, Google updated their Google Drive apps – including Drive – to be material. We’ve actually heard that internally the deadline for everyone to have a material app is November 3rd which is Monday and also the day that the Nexus 9 starts shipping out. So we should see a bunch of material design apps coming in the next few days.
