Good! I've been wanting them to do something like that, before it wasn't clear how to do it (I knew but I know a lot of people didn't)

I think google has to stop being like a 2nd class apple, and innovate and stand behind their products.

All they have is a mish mash if wanbabe apps and functionality.

I wonder if this will be rolled into Google+..... it is a interest group messenger by google... seems to go along with the interest, community and collection type social thingy that Google+ has become... maybe this is why hangouts never got included into G+

+Rick Dickson Subtly different. Your profile about page is here as viewed by me.

so, you can still share a link to a hangout to do a public hangout in a community or collection.. didn't knot that.. just go to hangouts.google.com and start a hangout and the option to share a link is there.. copy the link and then post it into a community, or collection, or just public on your profile... and post it.....this may explain why hangouts is no longer a big part of G+

Some better "blocked people" management in the beta desktop web version.

Accessible in two ways.
Via Activities, https://plus.google.com/u/0/apps/activities/blocked_users
Via MyAccount https://myaccount.google.com/blocklist

Both routes are hard to find and the end result is incomplete. But it's a start.
 
We just recently rolled out a new section of My Account - a list of the accounts you've blocked.

No more jumping through hoops to find someone if you need to unblock them, or to check if you already have someone blocked. Just visit https://myaccount.google.com and click on "Your personal info" -> "Blocked users" to open the list.

Want to unblock someone? Find them in the list and click the 'X' next to their name.

Note that you can't create blocks from My Account. New blocks are created in the products where you interact with people. This helps avoid blocking the wrong account: as it turns out there are a lot of people with similar names out there. We put the 'create block' option in places like G+ post menus or Hangouts conversation options so you know exactly who you'll be blocking.

At the moment, it feels very unfinished.

Commenting and smart suggestions in shared albums

Shared albums have always been easy to use. Send an album link to anyone, let them add photos, and save photos to your library in a tap.

Now, shared albums are getting smarter and more social.

Starting today, people who join the album can add comments to photos and the album itself. So you can give your friend’s photo of her lunch and your mom’s photos of the cat the response it deserves, without leaving the app.

Plus, to make it easier to add your own photos to a received shared album, you’ll now see smart suggestions for the right photos to add. No more searching for photos from last weekend’s birthday party and picking out the perfect ones – now you can add your best photos from the event in one tap.

These features are rolling out now on Android, iOS, and web.

Make sure you have the latest Google Photos update for Android (v1.20) and iOS (v1.10).

It is unimaginable to me that +Google+ sells itself as a social network and at one time was probably one of the best social networks when it came to photos. The new version doesn't even let you tag a person in a photo, it doesn't let you check into a place on mobile. They really took the social out of Google+ when they tore photos out the way they did. They need to work on profiles, and somehow incorporate photos back in.

Wouldn't it be good if you can pin a post per Filter or have some way to describe what the filter was for?

+Google Plus Daily 
Previous Followers:
When a new Google+ followers added someone to their circles it will be noticed and found on People(Added you) list,
Moreover, if those few followers remove that profile from their circles they will disappear from that list,
How can Google+ user know about those previous Followers?
On this article the Unfollowed link will ease the Google+ user to organize who unfollowed or the number of previous followers that was on followers.
I hope this featured article will be available on next incoming updates, It is very useful idea and saves time.
Thanking your cooperation with anticipation, we remain.
Sincerely yours
+MOHAMAD GHOUL

I really think Google should have a pending status feature. Kind of like a draft blog feature which you can choose when to publish. Not sure if that feature is already available. Currently, I just assign them for myself and then post them publicly.

Is this new?
In the Android app, there is now a "Photos" card on someone's "About" page. Currently it does nothing. When you tap on "Photos" or "See all", it takes you back to the person's Google+ profile.

This "G+ Photos" card from the "About" profile is not new, been there for more than a year (from the old version of G+ via its "people recommendations" section, also from Hangouts, Gmail, Play Store, Inbox, etc.)

It does what it is supposed to do: take you to the person's Google+ profile to see all their shared photos :-) That said, in the old version of G+, it took you more precisely to the person's "G+ photos Tab", but as we know it no longer exists.

It seems kind of strange to me that with the new site of Google+ you can't longer host a Hangout on Air from a page. Can it really be right that can only be done from the old Google+ page - that seems like a backward step to me.

Well you're asking for two platforms to always work together, which means two teams to always be in sync for at least some moment, which doesn't always happen internally. If one platform has a major change, like Hangouts has been doing VERY slowly, and G+ has been, they have have to work together from scratch to make it work together again. Which is just more work on their side, so to just have a Hangouts On Air option on the Hangouts side would be easier for both the Hangouts team and the G+ Team
