Google has introduced a slew of new features for Google+ that seek to make navigation of the social network easier. On top of a new user interface, Google+ users will see a customisable navigation ribbon, a new discussion layout and more.
The navigation bar is the most noticeable change. Instead of a list on the top of your browser, you'll see a ribbon on the left with applications and options. You can customise the order of this bar any way you like as well as add or remove items. Conversations also get a revamp, with a new card system to quickly scan comments and full bleed photos. Finally, Google+ Hangouts get their own dedicated page so you can have quick access to every public hangout in your feed. The improvements are rolling out over the next few days.
