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.
