Today, Google announced on Google+ that it will be rolling out a few updates to the desktop version of the network. The updates include a larger cover photo for profiles, this photo now measures up to 2,120-by-1,192-pixels, a new local reviews tab that features restaurant reviews and updates to the ‘About’ tab so you can edit the page easier:
- A new tab for your Local reviews. In addition to your photos, +1′s and YouTube videos, there’s now a place for all your Local reviews. Highlight your favorite restaurants, or hide the tab completely via settings — it’s completely up to you.
- An easier way to edit your info. The ‘About’ tab now consists of separate cards (like Story, Places, and Links) — each with its own prominent edit link. As always: you can share specific fields with specific circles, or keep them just for you.
- Bigger cover photos, with a better aspect ratio. Cover photos are much larger than before (up to 2120px by 1192px), and they display in 16×9 when fully expanded. This way more images can be used as cover photos, and there’s more room for your selection to shine.
Google said that the updates will gradually roll out users.
