Notifications are another area of improvement. Google’s main focus was to improve the quality of information in notifications, as they were previously short and cryptic. They now include a more substantial preview that makes understanding the update easier.

Google+ Photos has been redesigned as well, receiving a redesigned Lightbox interface and improved photo tagging.

These changes are all notable improvements of existing features. Google+ may be fighting an uphill battle against Facebook, but if updates like this become typical, they stand a chance.
