Some anticipation...  :)
 
I just know I'm gonna have trouble sleeping tonight so I think I'll just chill out to this album and hope for the best. Hey +Bradley Horowitz, what are you doing tonight to help with the inevitable insomnia?

Really big update that makes photos fly!
 
New photo features in Google+ for Android

Today’s update to Google+ for Android is all about photos. In particular, the app includes:

Non-destructive photo editing across devices
Starting today you can start your edits on one device, and continue (or start over) on another. This means you can backup full-resolution photos from your desktop, edit them in seconds on your phone, then add some finishing touches from your tablet. (And you can revert to your originals at any time!) The technical term for this experience is non-destructive editing in the cloud, and we think you'll really enjoy it.

Brand new filters and creative tools
Now when you edit your photos, you’ll have a powerful set of tools (like crop and rotate), 1-touch filters, and Snapseed-inspired enhancements (like Drama, Retrolux, and HDR Scape). Mix and match to make your photos look their absolute best.

A single view of all your photos
The new ‘All’ view displays your entire photo library — whether it’s on your current device, or backed up in the cloud. If your library is really large (> 10s of thousands of photos), the app won’t show all your photos initially. But stay tuned, because we’re supporting larger and larger libraries over the next few weeks.

An easy way to browse your photos by date
In addition to search, there’s now another way to find your photos fast. Just swipe through your photos in the ‘All’ view, and look for the scroll bar on the right. Dragging the scroll bar up or down will quickly move you forwards or backwards in time.

The app is rolling out gradually to Google Play (v4.3, http://goo.gl/ruuHW), so check back soon if you don’t see it yet. #googleplusupdate

Some of our great team that worked to make stories happen.
 
The Storymakers

I'd like you all to meet the Googlers who have been working tirelessly for a long time to bring you our newly announced Auto Awesome Stories. This team is comprised of rock stars whose goal it was to help transform individual photos into cohesive moments in your life's story.

Congrats, guys!

Ed note: I originally deleted this post because I wasn't happy that I missed the plane of focus, rendering Ben, Erik, and Cody slightly soft. However, Paul and Joseph expressed that they like it so back it goes up in the public stream! :)

Well +Dave Besbris posted "Every Picture Tells a Story" and +Bradley Horowitz posted "Story of My Life", so I'm expecting some sort of Auto Awesome that tells your life story through pictures.

Hangouts 2.0 for iOS: more reliable, more fun!

Today we’re launching the newest version of Hangouts for iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch, ready to download now on iTunes (http://goo.gl/FDOfq). The app has a brand new look and feel, is super easy to navigate, and includes a bunch of performance improvements. You can still make free voice and video calls, of course. Or send a quick photo. But we’re adding a few more features we think you’ll love:

- Stickers: express your mood with fun animated stickers. Think of them as emoji, but even more awesome.

- Video Messages: record and send short videos to everyone in the conversation. Now you can really say what you need to say.

- Location sharing: send a map of your current location with a few simple taps. Great for coordinating the whole gang when you’re ready to hangout IRL.

- Optimized for the iPad: enjoy big, beautiful video calls, and a two-pane conversation view. Perfect for the iPad’s larger screen.

We hope you enjoy the new Hangouts for iOS. As always, your feedback is an important part of making the app better, so give the new version a spin (http://goo.gl/FDOfq) and let us know what you think!
