    I don't have an android, but I believe you can, while you cannot from an iPhone (which I know for sure).

    Just read this:

    Hey everyone,

    Thanks for sharing your feedback.

    At the moment, there's no way to shoot a video from within the Google+ Android app or to easily share a video to Google+ from Gallery the same way you can with a photo.

    There actually is instant upload for videos – you just need to ensure that you have the correct Instant Upload settings in place: Settings >> Instant Upload Settings. If your phone tries to upload videos that are too big, you may see an error.

    The team will keep continue to think about ways to improve the Google+ experience with videos, and your feedback is quite valuable!


    P.S. Check out the Google+ Mobile discussion forum next time you have a Google+ suggestion, idea, question, issue:

    So when you check from a computer that folder states photos and videos…..when you enable instant upload from the mobile app it states photos only……..hmmmm

    I just upload my stuff to Picasa instantly or not and then just share it from there. You can set it up to instantly download if you hold your finger on the file for a few seconds it give you the option on my Droid X.

    Videos used to instantly upload from the Mobile app on Android (don't know about the iOS version). However, it would appear this feature has been removed in the latest Android app and its photos only.

    Ok then I am not crazy as I am sure the older version of the app had video upload……now it seems to be gone…

    "2. Instant upload of videos (from SD card AND other storage): this functionality is not supported in the newest version of the app. But, we've heard many users asking for it to come back, so our team is talking about providing it again as soon as possible."

    They cannot just remove that without a proper notice. I relied on the instant upload for my photos AND videos, and yes it used to do that in earlier version. I almost lost a bunch ov videos of my son when emptying my card. Lucky enough I double checked if ALL was uploaded. It wasnt.

    I've heard from +Punit Soni that they will be bringing it back.

    +Eric Krebs yep – it does seem so… now sadly my battery cannot keep up….

    A good way is as default set it to upload videos only when charging.

    Sadly thou I think there is no way to force the upload….I need to give it more of a looking over tomorrow…
