The integration of Google Plus into every Google product continues, with Gmail set to receive the ability to send messages to contacts in their Google Plus circles.
Today Google unveiled several new Google+ photo and video improvements, including the addition of Auto Awesome Movies and much more.
The event is likely dedicated to Google Plus, and while we can’t rule out a surprise appearance of the Nexus 5, it’s not something we would bet on.
