Google has added 24 new features to its Google+ apps for iOS and Android, with an emphasis on photos.

The Google+ Android app now offers full-size photo backups up to 5GB, with the app also bringing photo spheres to the mobile stream. Meanwhile, the new iOS app allows user to swipe through photo albums inline. The company said that photos were “a core part of Google+, and one which you’ve consistently told us means a lot to you”.

Other improvements to the Android app include on-the-go profile editing and an easier way to author content.
