Google Plus, the social networking site from Google, today launched a new interface.
Instead of static icons at the top,
Google has created a dynamic row of applications on the left. Users can drag icons up or down, hover over certain apps to reveal a set of quick actions and show or hide apps by moving them in and out of ‘More’.
The options include Hangouts, the Google group video chat; Google Plus Photos; Google Circles; and Games.
Google has also made the photo display on Google Plus larger than before and also created conversation ‘cards’ to make it easier to join discussions. Photos have become a focus of the new Google Plus design. Images shared in the stream are presented in a large view and flow into the Google Plus stream seamlessly.
There is also a dedicated Hangouts page, as well a new a new Explore page across the Google Plus network.

The most visible change is a new navigation ribbon on the left side of the Google Plus page with icons for the most-used features.
The new design is much prettier and easier to navigate than before.
