Facebook’s newly sped-up Android app may be the platform’s highest-profile social networking update to arrive this week, but Google fully intends to give Facebook a run for its money. VP Dave Besbris just posted to the Google+ blog that a feature-packed update to the company’s own social app offering is on the way, and should be becoming available later today.

A lot of the Android-specific changes have to do with how Google+ works with your photos. If you’ve got an Android 4.2 device and have been busy creating photo spheres, you’ll soon be able to share them through your mobile stream. As for more traditional photos, the app will let you start backing-up full-sized versions, rather than limiting their dimensions. Users will get 5GB of cloud storage for such uploads.

There’s also support for animated GIFs, a new lockscreen widget, and mobile profile-editing tools. Add that to Google Now birthday reminders, improved notifications, and support for Google+ communities, and you really start to get the sense that Google isn’t holding anything back.

Look for Google+ 3.3 to hit the Play Store sometime today.
