I’m really thrilled about today’s launch of the new Google+. More details from +Eddie Kessler ( and +Luke Wroblewski.

I’m particularly proud of the thoughtfulness that went into this overhaul, which is in the same spirit as the recently launched Google Photos. With Photos, we started with a clear and persistent dedication to the user, and then the team put awesome technology to work to bring an amazing product experience to life. In the same vein, the team looked thoughtfully at what was working (and not) in Google+, and reinvented the product to focus on the parts that shine -- as a place where people can delve into their interests. And both the native apps and web experience (desktop and mobile) are much faster and more beautiful than before.

Also, per my post on July 27th, we’ve been busy putting “Everything in its right place.” ( These changes include work toward retiring Google+ profiles as people’s identities across Google. The new “About Me” page ( makes it really straightforward to control how you appear across Google services, whether you use Google+ or not (see this VentureBeat story for more details: This groundwork will soon make it easy for people to use products like YouTube without joining Google+.

Enjoy the new products and let us know what you think!
Dive into the new Google+
As +Eddie Kessler shared this afternoon (, we’ve spent lots of time talking to people who are passionate about Google+. We visited them in their homes, we invited them into early testing communities and we learned more about how and why they use Google+. The predominant answer? Having a great place to keep up with and talk about their interests. From Astrophotography ( to Wild Hummingbirds (, people are not only discovering amazing things, but meeting others who share their passions as well.

Today we’re taking a big step toward making Google+ an even better place for your interests. To do so, we’ve drastically simplified nearly every aspect of the product. You’ll see this clearly in our new navigation centered around Collections and Communities. Collections let you immerse yourself in content about topics like surfing ( or tiny tilt-shift photography scenes ( . Communities enable groups of people with the same interests to join up and geek out on anything from Game of Thrones ( to Painting ( With Collections and Communities, discovering amazing things is simple: just follow or join whatever happens to pique your interests.

But we didn’t stop with Collections and Communities; the new Google+ also makes it easier to post, search, connect, and keep up with great content in a fully redesigned home stream. And we’ve worked hard to make our new web experience load fast and work beautifully on devices of all sizes.

You can preview the new Google+ on the web today by signing in and clicking “Let’s go” when you see the prompt. (And since not every feature of Google+ has made its way into this new design, for now, you can toggle back to the classic Google+ with one click in the bottom left-hand corner.) In the coming days, we’ll roll out updated apps for Android and iOS.

While this is an exciting new beginning for us, we’re definitely not done yet. We got here by listening and learning, and will continue doing so. Please visit our Help Center ( or drop us a line in our support community ( to share your thoughts, questions, and more.

Just got my new Nexus 6P and am blown away by the camera (and pretty much everything else about the experience.) Zoom around and appreciate the detail in this photo!

Another early takeaway - battery life is extremely important, but fast recharging is perhaps even more important.

Absolutely love this phone. Stunning achievement, congrats to the team.

Really psyched about my beautiful new Moto X Pure Edition phone. The phone is plenty powerful, has great ergonomics and feel, a fantastic camera, and importantly is "pure" Android (plus actual improvements from Motorola)... Moreover, reasonably priced ($399.)

I went for the textured leather back and a white front. Love it.

Congrats to my friends at Motorola.

I'm a bit of a dosa snob (having lived in India for a spell) and was very excited to try Dosa... We ordered a few appetizers and the classic standard by which all dosas must be judged - the Masala Dosa. Delicious. The dosa itself was crisp, light and not burned... and the filling was deliciously spiced and not oily. The appetizer was beautifully presented. All in all a very efficient and great night.

We had a really lovely early lunch at Asiate, upon checking into the Mandarin Oriental at Columbus Circle. The food was really exceptional, and the view (on the 35th floor overlooking the park) was breath-taking. Service was comfortably casual and friendly. It was a great way to start our NYC adventure.

We treated ourselves to an evening of fine dining at Feitoria, in the beautiful Altis Belem Hotel and Spa. The Hotel and restaurant are stunningly beautiful. Right on the shores of the Tagus river, the views at sunset are spectacular... as the light is glistening and warmly glowing on the hillsides across the river. The decor of the hotel is understated, austere even, and classic. Minimilist granite. The food was a bit of "molecular gastronomy", but without overdoing it to the degree it becomes circus. We were served an "amuse bouche" of a savory oreo - black crackers, with crab cake filling. Delicious. Then we were brought gazpacho soup in a martini glass - including a faux olive (that was produced via molecular gastronomic magic.) For our entrees - I ordered the crusted sole, and my better half wisely ordered the 5 course tasting menu and wine pairings. She was presented with dish after exquisite dish. Everything was exceptionally and freshly presented. The staff as attentive and light-hearted. The wines were varied and delicious. We really enjoyed dessert. I ordered the "Seven textures of Apples" and she had the "Banana Split." Like many of our dishes, each one came with a narration and explanation as to the unique preparation. This was a perfect meal to what turned out to be a perfect night. We'll be back here whenever opportunity allows.

I'm here for the Wall Street Journal "D10" Conference, and I couldn't be more impressed with this facility. Sometimes it's easy for me to forget that when you factor out the cars, the people, the scene, etc. Los Angeles is gorgeous! A short 30m drive down the Pacific Coast Highway, and here you are... The staff, the rooms, the food... all first rate. I'd consider coming back here for a family trip.
