More Google+ Hangout updates!

I personally have been waiting for things like this for a while, so hopefully we will get to see more of the same in the next few updates.
We finally have Google Docs integration in Google Hangouts!

This may not be new, but I have only just got it. This is something a lot of us have been waiting for!

Thank you so much +Isaac Sparrow!
(And thanks to +Neeta Tolani for drawing my attention to it!)

Be sure to go and play with the new organiser now!

Remember, Google+ updates roll out over time, so if you do not have it yet then please be patient.

Hi, I’m +Isaac Sparrow an Engineer on the Google+ Photos team.

Rearranging photos and moving them between albums are two of our top feature requests. Today, we’re excited to launch an album organizer so you can better tell the story of your photos.

To get started, open one of your albums and select Organize album from the Options menu. With the album organizer you can:

Sort photos by time: Click Order by date to sort all photos in the album by the photo date, from earliest to latest. Click it again to sort them from latest to earliest.

Reorder your photos: Select the photos you want to reorder and drag them to their new position in the album. You can also move selected photos to the start or end of the album by clicking Move to top or Move to bottom.

Move or copy photos to another album: Clicking Move lets you move or copy selected photos to one of your other albums or to a new album.

Delete a bunch of photos: Click Delete to delete the selected photos.

Once you are done, click Done organizing to return to your album view. Happy story-telling and keep the feedback coming!

New Hangout build rolling out

A new Hangout build is rolling out right now as well as for the chat. This update seems to fix the join issues some people had with Chrome and will also improve that chat in hangouts. You have now colored names and the font size for general messages (join, leave) is smaller than the rest of the text.

As usual it rolls out in waves, so be patient if you don'T have it yet.

Updated photo lightbox

Two quick updates to the photo lightbox

Back in December we made lots of improvements to the photo lightbox on Google+ (, and today we've rolled out two updates in response to your feedback:

1) We no longer overlay comments over photos when you enter full photo mode. You can still see comments in this mode by hovering over the comment count.

2) We've made some optimizations so that photos fill even more of the screen.

Thanks, and keep the feedback coming!

Find my Face notification

Introducing Find My Face notifications

Hi, I'm +Matt Steiner and I lead the Google+ Photos team.

Back in December we launched Find My Face to help make it easier to tag photos of you and your friends. ( If you've turned this feature on, then starting today you'll see a new improvement: Find My Face notifications.

Basically: Google+ can now give you a heads up when someone you know shares a photo with you, with you in it. It's especially fun after special events or family gatherings, when everyone sends their pictures around.

As always, you get to decide which photo tags you accept or reject, and you can turn Find My Face on or off (including notifications) in Google+ settings. (

Thanks and keep the feedback coming!

#googleplusupdate #ios
New Google+ iOS app, now with Instant Upload!

A new version of the Google+ iOS app is rolling out to the App Store, and it comes with one of your most requested features: Instant Upload! Once enabled, all photos and videos that you take are automatically uploaded to a private album on Google+ -- ready to share with your circles, or the world.

Other cool features in this release include:
- The What’s Hot stream
- Shake your phone to send feedback: Google+ Update: Shake and Send (Sexy) Feedback from your iPhone
- Various bug fixes and performance improvements

You can download the latest version here:

We look forward to seeing your beautiful pictures on Google+. Do keep the feedback coming!

* Instant Upload is only active while the Google+ iOS app is open, and for a brief period after you close it. Re-opening the Google+ app resumes your photo & video uploads exactly where they left off.

Google Updated the circle management page to have a cleaner look and feel.
They also improved the suggestions for users and pages.

It is still rolling out so you may don't have it yet!
Google+ Circles: cleaner look & feel, better suggestions
#googleplusupdate #circles

The Circles page is great for customizing your existing connections, as well as discovering new ones, and today we're excited to roll out improvements along both dimensions.

First, you'll notice that Circles are nicer to look at, and much easier to use, including:

- A new left-hand navigation menu
- Quick access to your email address book(s)
- Circles that shrink in size on smaller screens

Second, and building on earlier work by +Simon Tong, +Jeff Dean and +Sanjay Ghemawat (, we've made lots of improvements to "Find People." Simply type the name of a person or page you're interested in, and we'll suggest related individuals and organizations to add to your circles. (

We're always working to make Circles fast, fluid and fun, so let us know what you think in the comments, and keep the feedback coming!
