Starting today, users are now going to be able to discover new Communities and join them instantly. In addition to that, the company has been rolling out new features all day that will promote Communities both on the network’s sidebar and also in its stream.

Speed is the only major change here—everything else is essentially identical to the old app. After updating, you’ll notice pretty quickly that the app loads, scrolls, and just works faster than the previous version.
