A new update for the Google+ app on Android is rolling out, and there’s a lot to love about it. It’s G+ version 7.3, and not only does it round up a bunch of pesky bugs, but it also smooths out a lot of functionality, adds a handful of new perks, and brings back one sorely missed feature.

High on this list is the new wifi speed boost, which allows for significantly faster browsing when connected to a wifi network. The devs have also given users the ability to filter notifications. Now you can see all of them at once, unread only, or other filters. Community moderation tools have been added, and you can finally delete multiple items in an Activity Log simultaneously. That top bar that was alway irritating when you were scrolling Collections and Communities? That hides now. Finally, search autocomplete has been turned back on. The function was temporarily disabled after the devs found a fairly serious bug that affected users using Airplane mode.

As always, they also tracked down nearly a dozen bugs and put them out of their misery. The update is live now in the Google Play Store, so if you don’t feel like waiting around for Google+ to update, you can click the button below to get the latest version right away.
