Google has just announced an update for its Google+ Android App. With a focus on speed, here are the things we’re seeing in this latest version:

  • Massive performance improvements across the app
  • What’s Hot!
  • View who +1’d a post or comment
  • Stream posts shortened to fit more per scroll
  • Infinite photos feed in “From your circles”
  • Stream no longer jumps to the top for an automatic refresh

Here’s what the Android team had to say about the release:

Today, we’ve made available a new version of Google+ for Android that includes significant performance improvements across the board, so your stream and photos (and just about everything else) should load more quickly.

While speed improvements are most certainly welcomed, it’s important to note that the Google+ app still hasn’t been optimized for viewing on a tablet, which is unfortunate. We’ve been waiting for Google to make sweeping updates to all of its apps to make them prettier on Android tablets, but alas it hasn’t happened.
