Two New Google+ App Features on the Way: What’s Hot List and Seeing Who +1’d Something

The Google+ team introduced a couple of new features to the mobile web version of the service today:  a What’s Hot list and the ability to see who has +1’d something. Both features will be included in Android and iOS apps in the near future:

  • With What’s Hot, you can now see some of the most interesting content being shared on Google+ with a flick of your thumb. To use it, just swipe to the right of your Circles stream.
  • To see who +1’d a post in the stream, just click on the +1 count underneath the post. It’s a small improvement that makes it easier to engage with others around content.

Gettin’ better by the day.

    Based on the screenshot, that is the Google+ Mobile Web and not the Android App. Just an FYI

    The rate of G+ growth is phenomenonal.  The numbers are pretty staggering and blow FB away at the same point in time.  That said, FB still dwarfs G+, but by the end of 2012, we will have a pretty idea how these two giants match up.  At its continued pace, G+ will pass FB in 2013.

    Google+ is failing in my circle, no pun intended. I can’t seem to get anyone to use it and dump facebook. I don’t know how successful it is going to be moving forward for 2012.

     Is the Google+ app uninstallable on ICS or would I need root to do that? The less stuff I don’t use on my phone, the better.

    Does that mean that my phone, too, will be inundated with all of those animated GIFs?

    I love Google+.  It’s fast, powerful, and easy to understand.  So pretty much the complete opposite of facebook.

      Now we just need everyone to dump FB and start using G+. The last comment someone I know made in G+ was back in August.

    Anyone else experiencing bad audio feedback when trying to use the Hangout feature on their Droid RAZR or Galaxy Nexus?

    It’s completely unusable for my wife and me, even after the last Google+ app update.
