Google+ Web Preview Now Has A Pinned Post Indicator

March 3, 2016 - Written By Justin Diaz

Over the last couple of months, Google has been continuing to make some drastic and some not so drastic changes to the web preview version of Google+. While perhaps the most noticeable in recent past has been the brand new user interface design that Google+ now sports (optionally, of course), other recent changes included the improvements made to capability for pinning posts, and more recently the ability to search for specific members inside of community thanks to the community search option. Today Google has laid out some more changes that have now been made to the web preview version of Google+ included a whole collection of bug fixes and a couple of new functions.

First and foremost, there are now 41 more bugs that Google has fixed in the web preview, which usually means that users can expect an overall improved experience and better overall performance of the service on the web even if it’s only a slightly noticeable difference. Aside from bug fixes to improve the user experience and performance of Google+, the web preview now also showcases a pinned post indicator, and you can pin posts in communities, collections, and profiles whereas the pinned posts before were only available to be utilized within profiles.

Another useful addition is the new ability to see your recent search history in the Google+ web preview, so if you have previously searched for something but have later forgotten what it was, you’ll now be able to see it pop up in the search bar once you click on it. This alone would have been a nice addition especially for those who utilize the search within Google+ on the web a lot. Sharing collections has also been improved so collections is a big part of your Google+ consumption, you should notice a general improvement to performance prior to this update. Lastly, Google notes that two accessibility issues have been addressed so they should no longer be affecting anyone that was experiencing them before. While there weren’t any major sweeping changes to the web preview this time around, there are always more updates coming according to Google so users should definitely be on the lookout for them.
