Today there is a new update to the google plus android app that is available on the android market. Current google+ android app only allows you to comment on any post shared by your friends, family or anyone in your circles. With this new feature introduced today, it allows you to re-share any post from your friends, family or anyone in the circle with pretty much anyone in the circle.
Below you’ll find how to re-share a post with a individual or a circle.
Select a post that you want to re-share either from your in stream, in circles or from your profile and touch on the “…” button on the top right.
Now you’ll see a menu with re-share option, touch on the re-share option.
It’ll show you the sharing screen. On the top area next to the circle, touch and start to type a circle’s name or a persons name and add them.
Below type in a comment or a message for the people or some message you want to talk about the post you are sharing and once done, touch on the Post button.
That’s it, you’ve re-shared your post from google+ mobile app. This feature is coming soon to iPhone.
Here is a video from Google that explains this feature
This feature is similar to sharing a post on google+ using +1 button on the web.
