Google+ update brings more than 41 new features

We have seen plenty coming out of Google I/O this morning. The announcements have included everything from the Google Edition GALAXY S 4 to Google Play for Education to the "All Access" music service that looks set to take on the likes of Spotify.

Google Picasa albums now redirecting to Google+

Google appears to be continuing the process of pushing all Picasa users over to Google+. We have seen some of this in the past, however as of today, those surfing to picasaweb.google.com will end up on the Google+ Photos page. Another recent push from Google came when they removed the Picasa link in the navigation bar. Those checking will find an option for "Photos" which also takes you to the Google+ Photos page.
