Developers site redesign We’re introducing a new look and feel to the front end of our Google+ developers site today so you may notice a few changes. We wanted to make it easier and simpler for folks to learn about the growing set of features our platform has to offer. The updated design reflects feedback we received from the community and includes new content like case studies from +Hotel Tonight, +Deezer, and +Jolicloud, so you can see what other developers have been up to with the platform. We hope you like it, let us know what you think.
Launching today as part of Google Play Services 4.1 -- an improved Google+ sharing experience with better auto-complete. Now when Android users start adding recipients within the Google+ sharebox, auto-complete will suggest Gmail contacts, device contacts, and people on Google+. And of course: users can also just type in an email address.
