Google+ is to open its new app for developers and allow users to tweet their photos, a move aimed at encouraging people to share their stories and experiences online.
The news follows Google’s announcement last month that it would be bringing its photo sharing app Photos to the Google Play store for free.
Google’s latest app, which was launched alongside a new feature called Moments, will allow users, like other users, to share pictures, text and videos in seconds.
Users will also be able to reply to others.
The company is also introducing a new voice-recognition feature for those who want to share a picture of themselves with friends.
Google+ was originally announced in February 2014, but the launch was delayed in May after a lawsuit was filed.
