Google rolled-out minor updates for YouTube, Android Device Manager and Google+

Google has released few minor updates to three of its apps, YouTube, Android Device Manager, and Google+. Just hold on, if you are thinking these updates are the preparation for next Android L update then sit back and relax as these are not in any way related to Android L version.

These are just general updates for minor usability improvements and minor stylistic enhancements.

Now let’s talk about the updates, the Google+ app is updated to version 4.5, which does not show any noticeable changes, except the profile pages on which user headshots are now awkwardly off-centered, consistently circular, and parallel with posts underneath.

YouTube app is bumped up to version 5.9 which reveals a new menu and tapping on the three dots next to playlists will allow you to save or share.

The update also replaced the “plus” icon with “like” icon for adding videos to playlists. You’ll also notice a new “View All” button in the slide-out navigation bar replacing the “Show More” button, a shortcut to the playlist tab.

Now coming to the Android Device Manager, the update bumps it to version 1.3.8. Now you’ll get a new option add a phone number for whoever comes into possession of it to automatically dial the mentioned number.

Once you’ve entered the desired phone number, the lockscreen will show a big green icon that says “call owner”. Now whoever finds your phone can easily contact you at your mentioned phone number.

The update is rolling-out slowly, so you won’t be getting it right away.
