Google+ Gets A New Look and 41 New Features


Yesterday at the Google I/O conference, Google launched a redesign of its social networking platform, Google+. The redesign has a new look and feel with a multi-column layout that echoes that of Pinterest. In addition to the design, there are 41 new features, among which a couple stand out as particularly innovative:

1. Google+ has now expanded their focus on hashtags with a feature called “Related Hashtags.” The network will now automatically scan your updates and add relevant hashtags allowing those who follow you to learn more about the subject of your content.

2. A photo feature, actually named “Auto Awesome,” takes a set of photos in your library and turns them into an animated GIF. Another feature called “Auto Enhance” improves brightness, contrast and saturation.

3. Finally merging its disparate communications systems together, Google Hangouts will now be the unified messaging system across platforms, replacing Google Talk, Google+ Messenger and the original Google+ Hangout video chat service.
