A Simpler, Better Google +

November 18, 2015

Google+ has rolled out updates that make it easier to focus on the features our Apps customers find the most useful. There’s a new homestream to quickly browse through content, Communities that make it easy to safely share ideas and Collections that enable organizations to curate their work and keep it in one easy-to-find place. 
The fully redesigned homestream is built to be fast and simple. The new design makes it easier to use whether you’re at your desk browsing through posts or sharing an update on the go from a smaller mobile device screen. 
Domain-restricted Communities are a popular way for organizations to share content and ideas amongst teammates, with the peace of mind that they’ll stay private. We’ve already seen how a global fashion brand uses Communities to inspire conversation about products and branding among employees across the world and how a Japanese startup is keeping their staff up-to-date as they build a vaccine.
Collections let you keep all your related content in one spot and make it easier to discover and browse. For example, earlier this year Google dedicated a week on the Google for Work G+ page to the System Admins. In order to keep all that content together, we put it into a Collection.

For more information on the launch, check out the Official Google Blog. The new-look Google+ is available on the web today and is coming to iOS and Android later this week.
