Google+ app redesign spotted in leaked images

If you needed even more proof that Google is gearing up for a pretty major redesign in the next version of Android, you'll want to take a look at these alleged Google+ images.
April 16, 2014

Between all the rumors, leaks and gossip, it’s pretty much guaranteed that the next major Android release will bring several UI changes including redesigned icons, apps and a redesign of the multi-tasking view (Project Hera). If you needed even more proof that change is heading our way, Yoel Kaseb has just provided you with some, via Google+. The screenshots seen above show off what Kaseb says is a test build of the upcoming Google+ app.

For Kaseb’s part, he says he no longer has access to the app, and that the version he did utilize was still unstable and unfinished. This also means it is unclear if the UI changes seen in the screenshot will make it into the final version. What is interesting is the at the new design language is still very similar to what we’ve already seen from existing versions of Android, with an added splash of color. The design is also spot-on with the Gmail screenshots that Reddit user Androidleaker previously shared.

For now we can’t say with any certainty whether the above images are legit, though they look pretty compelling. Even if they are the real deal, it’s possible that could has added further UI changes since then.

Curious as to what kind of design language the next Android release might take on? Check out our previous coverage highlighting some of the possible redesign styles that have been leaked so far.
