Google+ app updates on iOS, finally brings Instant Upload feature

Google has updated and released a new version of the Google+ iOS app. The update is now live and is now available as the iTunes App Store.  The update’s highlight is Instant Upload. Once you enable it, all photos and videos that you take are automatically uploaded to a private album on Google+
The feature was already on the Android app, and it finally reaches the iOS app, although I find this feature a little annoying as everyone on your G+ account can view it. However, it is a neat backup option for all your photos.

Other features in the update include:

  • The What’s Hot stream
  • Shake your phone to send feedback: Google+ Update: Shake and Send (Sexy) Feedback from your iPhone
  • Various bug fixes and performance improvements

Google also says that the Instant Upload feature is only active while the Google+ iOS app is open; it shuts off when you close it. Re-opening the Google+ app resumes your photo & video uploads where they left off.
