Google+ reveals shutdown timeline for consumers — and it’s coming fast

Wednesday, January 30th, 2019

Google announced its plans to sunset its Google+ social media network for consumers on a sour note in October. The platform, which has a small but dedicated user-base, decided to shut down following Google's acknowledgement of a data exposure that affected up to 500,000 Google+ profiles. Shortly after, in December, the shutdown timeline was expedited due to another, larger bug that had the potential to reveal private user information and impacted approximately 52.5 million users.

Update Notes for YouTube, Google+, YouTube Music, Google Camera, Photos, and Wear OS (October 28, 2018)

Sunday, October 28th, 2018

Every week, I examine somewhere in the neighborhood of a hundred app updates while looking for changes. The most interesting things turn into APK Teardowns or Download posts. Many of the remaining updates are unremarkable, amounting to a few bug fixes, routine updates to libraries, or even just pixel-level adjustments to layouts and images. However, there are usually a few updates that land somewhere in between. I don't want to spam readers with dozens of short posts, but I hate to ignore things that people might want to know about, so I'm going to wrap up the leftovers for a little weekend reading and call it Update Notes.

Google+ v10.14 plans termination of Events and prepares bookmarking for favorite posts [APK Teardown]

Wednesday, September 5th, 2018

A new update to Google+ struck yesterday, but it doesn't appear to include any visible changes. However, a look through the APK points to a new built-in feature for bookmarking posts to open again in the future. There's also a warning that the Events feature is likely to be shut down sometime soon, and one line raises some questions about the upcoming titles feature.

Google France shuts down its Google+ page, asks users to follow it on Twitter and Facebook instead

Friday, August 24th, 2018

No social network has been as equally loved and hated as Google+. Those who use it appreciate the tight community and fruitful discussions, those who don't use it see no reason whatsoever to start doing so and deride its many shortfalls. Plus, both the spam propagation and the lack of meaningful development haven't helped its case lately. But nothing has sounded the alarm bells of Google+'s slow demise into pointlessness as much as one of Google's own entities deciding to abandon the platform for good.

Thursday, July 19th, 2018

The social networking service that everyone loves to hate has actually made some decent strides over the past year or so on both the web and Android in terms of convenience and usability. A cohesive user experience is probably not what Google+ needs most in its quest for mainstream relevance, but it can’t hurt to try new things.

The latest small changes noticed by devoted fans of the Android app include the addition of a fifth bottom bar option.

Monday, June 4th, 2018

A few weeks ago, it became clear that G0ogle+ is headed toward a pretty major overhaul to the post editor that would bring support for new formatting and styling options for text. The latest update brings clues that this isn't where the new features will stop. It looks like Google+ may also add separate titles to posts and also integrate with Google Drive for attachments and that will include previews.

Google told us about a great many things at I/O that are coming to many different products across the Google family, but one big service wasn't mentioned: Google+.

How to message someone on Hangouts from Google+ on the web and Android

Monday, April 9th, 2018

With all the different apps and services Google offers, you've got no shortage of choices for how to get in touch with people, ranging from a simple email to a video call. And while all those options let us pick the most appropriate method for a given circumstance, sometimes accessing a particular one isn't as streamlined as we'd hope it would be — and that's especially true when we're looking at the intersection between more than one of these services.

Google+ adds ‘Highlights’ notification option for communities and collections

Tuesday, March 27th, 2018

Until recently, only two notification levels were possible for Google+ communities and collections you're subscribed to: on or off. Thankfully, someone at Google has realized how frustrating it is to only get all notifications or none at all, and a new Highlights option has just been introduced.

Selecting Highlights will give you periodic digest notifications with some of the top posts from all of your communities and collections. This should mean that you won't miss out on any important news or updates while at the same time not getting all the usual spam.
