During its annual I/O Developers Conference in San Francisco on Wednesday, Google senior vice president Vic Gundotra announced 41 new features for the company’s social networking site. Google+ will receive yet another redesign that looks to unify the website on smartphones, tablets and desktop computers. The redesign will adapt based on the screen size of the device from one column when viewing on a smartphone to two to three columns when on a tablet or laptop. One of the new features Google added is called “related hashtags,” which can analyze the content of a post and automatically apply a hashtag to them. Another feature, known as Auto Enhance, will analyze uploaded photos and help make them look even better by adjusting the saturation levels, brightness, contrast and color.
