Internet giant Google appears to have brought the Google Play integration into Google+ to a new level, providing users with one more feature than it did before.

To be more precise, people can now install Android apps on their devices straight from the social networking site.

This app sharing capability enables users to simply drop the Google Play link of an application they like on Google+, and the website will automatically embed the Install/Buy button next to it.

As soon as a user clicks on the button, a dialog box will emerge, asking users to confirm the action. The app’s Google Play page will load in the background, TNW notes.

The news site also explains that, when users +1 an app in the store, the app is shared on their Google+ stream, but the Install/Buy button is not included.
