Meet the new Google+

Enjoy a beautiful new way to explore the stuff you love, and dive deeper into the things you like with related hashtags.

The company added 41 new features to Google+ as a part of an effort to make it smarter and more intuitive, with the help of bigger pictures and related hashtags.

The update includes a multi-column layout. Depending on the screen size and orientation — and what kind of device you’re using — there will be one, two or three columns. Photos take center stage and fill the entire width of the stream, as a part of an effort to make it easier for users to scan the site.

“Behind the scenes, we’ll also identify and rank relevant conversations across the network,” Google said. “When you click on the related hashtag, we’ll flip the card, and let you browse related content inline.”

Google also announced a series of features to improve photos. For example, Auto Awesome — yes, it’s actually called that — uses a set of photos in your library to create an animated GIF.

Auto Enhance is a filter that improves brightness, contrast, saturation and so on of pictures, and Auto Highlight helps you assemble albums easier.

“Auto Highlight helps you find your favorites faster by de-emphasizing duplicates, blurry images and poor exposures, and focusing instead on pictures with the people you care about, landmarks, and other positive attributes,” the company said.

Google announced 190 million people are now active in the Google+ stream, while 390 million are active across Google, including +1’ing apps in Google Play, making video calls in Gmail and sharing videos from YouTube.
