While Google+ doesn’t really see an awful lot of use against the juggernauts Twitter and Facebook, some do still insist on using it, and Google has now added AMP support to Google+. When web pages are shared, if they have an AMP version, they’ll show with a little lightning bolt over the top. The move was announced by Google’s John Nack (on Google+, of course):
Fast Web pages rock, and we’re making Google+ an even better place to read great stories by adding support for Accelerated Mobile Pages (https://www.ampproject.org/). Now when you browse G+ on the Web on your phone, look for the little lightning bolt icon to load articles up to 4x faster, using up to 10x less data. Enjoy, and stay tuned as we add support for more platforms and publishers in the near future.
We doubt too many people will notice this change, or care if they do, but it’s a neat little addition to Google+ either way.
