Google+ for iOS has been a few steps behind its Android counterpart since its release late last year, but it’s finally been updated to bring one of the more coveted features to the iPhone.

Mobile video Hangouts are now possible using the front-facing camera on your iPhone 4 or 4S: you can either start one or join an existing one, over both WiFi and 3G.

The photos UI has received an overhaul, and it looks significantly better than it did before.

Check out the update in the iOS App Store.

    I use Google+. And this gives me reason to use it even more. Just a hangout between me (on Android) and two others (iPhone and desktop). Killer feature.

    60 million people would like to answer you but cannot find the address of your bridge where you live.

      60 million people ?
      How many ACTIVE users in that amount of people ?
      I made an account myself when it started but now, i don’t use it.
      I guess you now have 59 999 999 users.

    Typical goggle number reporting. 60 million shipped, but only 1 or 2 sold. 59,999,999 closed due to inactivity.

    My friends and I use google+ for messenger and hangouts.
    One bug that has hung around for a while now on the IOS version is that you cannot click links from within Google+ messenger.
    I hope that this is finally corrected with the new version.
