Google has announced that its still relatively new Google+ Search feature now will update its results in real time plus has new support for hashtags.

Alerts For New Results

In the screenshot above, you can see the “1 more recent post” link. Select that, if it shows, and your search results will be updated. The exact number of posts will vary by search and activity, of course.

If you’re searching in “Most Recent” mode, then the results will automatically update

Hashtags Gain More Search Support

Clicking on that link will run a search for that hashtag:
