Google has started rolling out a new design on Google+ that is cleaner and more functional for its users. Some of these updates include expanded navigation capabilities, the ability to post much larger photos and videos, a dedicated place for Hangouts, and a new Explore page that highlights top trending stories. Details of the changes are laid out on the Google blog.
Google+ now includes a dynamic ribbon of applications on the left-hand side. Simply drag apps up or down to create the order you want. You can also hover over certain apps to reveal a set of quick actions, and show/hide apps by moving them in/out of “More.”
