The changes only apply to Hangout Video Calls (HVCs), not Hangouts on Air (HOAs).
Key changes include:
• Calls that start faster and stay crisper, with higher quality video
• A more streamlined and immersive full-screen interface
• A simpler way to invite friends and family to your calls
If you want to go back to the version of Hangouts you’re used to, visit http://g.co/hangouts or click the menu at the top right and choose “Original version.”
We’ll be rolling out to a small group of users starting today and expanding globally in the days ahead. Keep an eye out and tell us what you think!
Make sure every element of your website uses HTTPS, including widgets, java script, CSS files, images and your content delivery network.
Use 301 redirects to point all HTTP URLs to HTTPS. This is a no-brainer to most SEOs, but you'd be surprised how often a 302 (temporary) redirect finds its way to the homepage by accident.
Make sure all canonical tags point to the HTTPS version of the URL.
Use relative URLs whenever possible.
Rewrite hard-coded internal links (as many as is possible) to point to HTTPS. This is superior to pointing to the HTTP version and relying on 301 redirects.
Register the HTTPS version in both Google and Bing Webmaster Tools.
Use the Fetch and Render function in Webmaster Tools (Search Console) to ensure Google can properly crawl and render your site.
Update your sitemaps to reflect the new URLs. Submit the new sitemaps to Webmaster Tools (Search Console).
Leave your old (HTTP) sitemaps in place for 30 days so search engines can crawl and "process" your 301 redirects.
Update your robots.txt file. Add your new sitemaps to the file. Make sure your robots.txt doesn't block any important pages.
If necessary, update your analytics tracking code. Most modern Google Analytics tracking snippets already handle HTTPS, but older code may need a second look.
Implement HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS). This response header tells user agents to only access HTTPS pages even when directed to an HTTP page. This eliminates redirects, speeds up response time, and provides extra security.
If you have a disavow file, be sure to transfer over any disavowed URLs into a duplicate file in your new Webmaster Tools (Search Console) profile.
It comes with code & security improvements and new useful features, just to mention:
• Menus in customize
• Site Icons
• Formatting Shortcuts
• and the one which I like the most Strong passwords generator
As usual I'll give it at least a week to read the community comments, give the developers time to update plugins & themes if needed and to avoid unnecessary conflicts and issues.

What would YOU do if the court came along and took your social profile (or page) from you?
h/t for sharing this one.
There's an interesting discussion happening now within the undercurrents of the legal systems, in which the idea that your social media profiles have intrinsic value, and therefore should be considered an asset.
If you or your business is facing bankruptcy, that could mean potentially that your debtors would look to seize your social accounts as part of your settlement.
There's some great speculation from of here about how courts are likely to proceed, but I'm also interested in hearing what you think.
Should someone's personal social media profiles be considered an asset? Under what circumstances?
