A few weeks back at Google I/O several new photo features were rolled out to Google+, but iOS users weren’t invited to the party until now. A new update Google’s social network app includes automatic photo enhancements and the ability to create an animated GIF from several pictures uploaded to a Google+ profile. The app will also highlight a user’s top shots.

Also baked into the latest version of Google+ for iOS are expanded hastags, which provides an automated list of relavent tags for status update. The changelog makes mention of Hangouts migrating to their own app, but you can still initiate a chat direct from Google+ for now. Here’s the full changelog:
