Update Wednesday has arrived! So what does Google have in store for us this week? So far Google+ has been the only update we’ve spotted, though it is possible we’ll see at least a few other minor app updates as the day progresses. Google+ v.9 is a fairly minor update, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t any noticeable changes.

First, you’ll find that Google has decided to change up some of the section names for G+, for example changing Everything to Home. Google has also introduced a new swipe down gesture that refreshes individual posts, making it easier than ever to see new comments. We’re sure there are at least a few other minor changes to the aesthetics here, but those are the most noticeable things. It’s also likely that the latest update includes the usual bug fixes and performance improvements seen with these types of updates, but we don’t have an official changelog just yet.

In Google’s usual fashion, expect this update to rollout in stages. For those that don’t want to wait any longer than they have to, we’ve uploaded the APK for your downloading pleasure. What do you think of the update? Let us know in the comments.
