Google has unveiled several new features for Google+ users today. In a blog post to announce the launch of the new features, Dave Besbris said “Today we’re adding a new batch of Android features, including on-the-go profile editing, an easier way to author content, and a subtle notice when there’s new stuff to read. You can also subscribe to mobile notifications from your favorite circles and interact with Google+ Communities on your phone or tablet.”

Users can enable full-size photo uploads in Google+ settings, by tapping on “Instant Upload,” then tapping “Set upload size.” The first 5 GB of full-size photo uploads are free. Users will have the option to buy more storage, starting at $2.49 per month for 25 GB of total storage.
