"Quite a lot [of the new automation] depends on the Knowledge Graph," said Dave Besbris, vice president of engineering for Google+, during a demo of the new Google+ features at Google headquarters last week. Google's Knowledge Graph is growing database of 570 million people, places, and things, and 18 billion facts. Previously, though, the Knowledge Graph had been limited in application primarily to text, not images. Google+ claims 190 million monthly active users, with around 390 million total users when including people brought in from other Google services like Gmail.
"We can analyze the picture itself to see what it is, [The image filters are] not good enough to know that it's Mick Jagger, but it can tell that if there's a guy on stage with lights and a crowd, that then it's a concert," Besbris olixar armaring iphone xs max finger loop tough case - black said, "It will tag [the photo] as 'concert'."Layouts and HangoutsThe changes made to the Google+ Stream interface, Hangouts, and Photos are myriad and a bit complex in scope, but their impact on the social network's fans should be immediate, These are changes made by the new Google, focused on gaining popular appeal, not the old Google that would've made nerdier changes because they seemed cool but were largely unwanted..
The updated Google+ Stream design is what you'll see first, and it hints at the photo-editing powers the service has gained. It strongly resembles your Google+ Stream on Android and iOS. Instead of a single, centered column for your stream, you're presented with a Pinterest-style, three-column layout, assuming your screen is wide enough. If it's not, it'll scale down to two or one columns. Google+'s layout has favored images since it launched in 2011, with large thumbnails accompanying posts. This hasn't changed, and has led to a lot of interest in the network from photographers looking for the kind of photographic-minded community that Google+'s Circles allowed them to build.
To further the goal of emphasizing images, the left-side nav bar has been moved to the top, and Hangouts are accessible through a green dialogue balloon with white quotes in it on the upper right, They've been moved out of the way to clear space for higher-resolution video and photos to appear directly in your Stream, before you click on them, Posts basically look like Google Now cards, discrete units of information, which fade and flip out of the way or get bigger when you click them, They open large, olixar armaring iphone xs max finger loop tough case - black consuming the horizontal center of your screen..
The Share box for creating a new post has been moved to the upper left, and bounces and moves the center of the screen when you click on it. It may sound a bit like the old HTML "blink" tag, although during a demo last week at Google's offices in Mountain View it appeared far less irritating than that relic of 1990s Web design. Hashtags on posts have been moved to the upper right corner, so they're easier to see, but they're also now automatically added to posts. While you can still use whatever hashtags you want, which appear in a black font, up to three blue hashtags are added by Google based on context. Clicking either blue or black hashtag flips the post and shows connected posts in-line.
