Google+ update offers seasonal cheer through 18 new features: improves mobile apps, hangouts and events (updated)
If Google+ communities didn’t fix those social network blues you’ve been feeling recently, perhaps a bumper edition of new features will. When the mobile app update goes live later today, you’ll be able to edit your profile through it as well being updated on what’s happening through new content notifiers. Subscription options will also expand to include Google+ Communities. Google will now give full-sized image back-ups when uploaded (up to 5GB are yours for free), while any Android Jelly Bean users will be able to share their photospheres directly from the phone app. Support for gifs is also included, as well as birthday reminders in Google Now and a new lock screen widget.
