Dive into the new Google+
As +Eddie Kessler shared this afternoon (goo.gl/2QjBGx), 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 (goo.gl/HRQmIh) to Wild Hummingbirds (goo.gl/6FscI6), 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 (goo.gl/vvv5QD) or tiny tilt-shift photography scenes (goo.gl/nWyicL) . Communities enable groups of people with the same interests to join up and geek out on anything from Game of Thrones (goo.gl/aaqtgq) to Painting (goo.gl/kmlM7m). 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 (goo.gl/gWsFeh) or drop us a line in our support community (goo.gl/eMFVj) to share your thoughts, questions, and more.

Interesting thoughts from +John Mcafee: "No talented hacker could deny that our commercial aircraft could be downed over the Internet by a hacker sitting comfortably in his living room halfway around the world. This, is unfortunately, an absolute truth. It is the reason that I am so adamantly opposed to the existence of the TSA in its current form."

Google's self-driving cars have come to Austin. 
 
A few weeks ago, we brought our prototype vehicle to +Thinkery in Austin and entertained lots of fun questions from kids and families. Now, a few of our prototype vehicles—also known by our neighbors as the koala cars, panda balls and many other names—have joined our Lexus vehicles on Austin’s city streets!

We’re excited for this next step and look forward to learning even more as we drive around town with our test drivers on board. If you see us on the road and have any feedback, don’t hesitate to reach out at www.google.com/selfdrivingcar.

And, if you’re an artist in Austin, join Paint the Town: Austin and submit art to be placed on our prototype vehicles! Up to 5 pieces will be selected to go on the cars and all selected artists will also get a ride in one of our self-driving vehicles. Submit your artwork by November 1, 2015 at www.google.com/selfdrivingcar/paint.

Driving too slowly? Bet humans don’t get pulled over for that too often.

We’ve capped the speed of our prototype vehicles at 25mph for safety reasons. We want them to feel friendly and approachable, rather than zooming scarily through neighborhood streets.  

Like this officer, people sometimes flag us down when they want to know more about our project. After 1.2 million miles of autonomous driving (that’s the human equivalent of 90 years of driving experience), we’re proud to say we’ve never been ticketed!
