Well, hopefully more than just walkie talkie, but also asynchronous voice/video messaging. Hangouts really needs that to catch up to WeChat.

More Hangouts Easter eggs: shortcuts for ಠ_ಠ and
(╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻  ! 

This only works from Hangouts on desktop.

Start a message with "/disapprove" and it'll be replaced by
ಠ_ಠ

Start a message with "/tableflip" and it'll be replaced with
(╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻

Start a message with "/shruggie" and it'll be replaced with
 ¯\(ツ)/¯  

It only works to type in the commands on desktop, but folks using the Hangouts mobile app will see the replacement text

Thanks +Sage LaTorra!

Since updating to 7.1.0, every time I click "Join" in communities I have to click it 2 times.
First click does nothing, second click joins.

Anyone else experiencing this issue?

This is a welcome addition. I just wish that more of the old functionality like being able to see more of the person/page's profile would come back.

Hi +George K​ You would do better asking that question in the Google My Business Community (https://www.en.advertisercommunity.com/t5/Google-My-Business/ct-p/GMB) because that is where you will find the experts on business-related issues. This community is for questions and problems relating to Google+.
Alternatively you can browse the help centre at https://support.google.com/business/.

Hangouts icon finally in the web launcher!
It seems the Hangouts shortcut is being rolled out in the web launcher finally. Seems to only be for +Google for Work​ customers at the moment. Hopefully an option for everyone soon. Not sure how this was missed when hangouts.google.com was launched...

Create animations and collages on the web

When one photo isn't enough, bring the moment to life with an animation or collage – now on any device, including the web.

Try it out on photos.google.com.

It's real interesting about that "power". I made a comment on a post, the moderator posted to me that he did not understand why Google flagged my post, but assured me that I can post freely in his community. Just saying.

Google+ Activity Log
Google+ now features a list of all your actions including posts, comments, +1s, votes, blocks, and much more. You can access your Activity Log on Android, iOS, and the Web from the Settings menu.

Filter the list to find recent comments or other actions you've made (I personally find this very useful when I want to re-find conversations I've participated in) or easily remove any action you've taken on Google+ using the X on each list item.

As usual, you can tell us what you think about this new feature using the Send Feedback menu item. Thanks~
