“Today, we’re starting to introduce a fully redesigned Google+ that puts Communities and Collections front and center. Now focused around interests, the new Google+ is much simpler. And it’s more mobile-friendly we’ve rebuilt it across web, Android and iOS so that you’ll have a fast and consistent experience whether you are on a big screen or small one.”

The company has been putting less emphasis on Google Plus, and CNN Money along with several other publications reported over the summer that the service was “getting dismantled.” In June, Google’s vice president of Streams, Photos and Sharing, Bradley Horowitz, said that the platform “is not dead.” Horowitz noted that what was left of Google Plus after taking away Hangouts and Photos had “more signs of life than it’s had in some time.”
