The coolest new feature is of course the Auto Awesome feature. Once Auto Awesome detects a set of photos, it will create a new composite photo which will be added to your photos collection. The most interesting feature is the Motion feature, which enables you to create a short animation of the repeating photo sequence. Another great tool Smile - when you have a set of pictures of a group, Auto Awsome will automatically choose the best shots of each person and merge them into one great looking photo. More great features which come with Auto Awesome are HDR image creation, Pano for panorama pictures and Mix which creates a photobooth style grid of picture with similar background elements.

SummaryAs said at the beginning of this post, this update has probably been the most impressive and important update to roll out on Google Plus. This upgrade is potentially a game changes when it comes to bringing people on to Google+ instead of other social networks such as facebook. It comes without say that Google has spent a serious amount of time designing and thinking, about what people would like to see & get when they come to Google+.
