Google is rolling out an updated design for the web and mobile versions of Google+. Starting today, users on the web will be prompted to switch to the new design if they wish.
The new design focuses more on the Collections and Communities features of the service. Collections is, well, a collection of posts matching a certain interest, such as photography. Community is where people can form a community based around an interest for like minded people to share and communicate in.
No new features have been added, but with the new design Google is putting more focus on these features by giving them a prime location in the new side menu.
Google is also redesigning its G+ app across platforms. Following the website redesign roll-out, Google will also be updating the Android and iOS apps with the same design.
The web redesign is now rolling out. Look out for the option to switch to the new UI. You will be able to go back to the older design if you wish as the new site doesn’t have all the existing features at the moment.
