The new Google+ interface is rolling out on the web today, and if you’re anything like me, you don’t have much patience for slow rollouts. I still hadn’t been prompted to click the “Let’s go” button and get the new layout, but luckily I stumbled on a way (via Sean S) to opt myself in without any wait time. Here’s how…

  1. Go to the Settings pane (located in the left drop-down menu)
  2. Scroll down to the “Manage other apps & activity” section
  3. Click on “Manage Google+ activity”
  4. Click the search bar at the top of the screen

When you head to the Google+ home page, you should notice that you now have the new layout. If you were hoping I had some magic trick to get the new mobile apps, though, I’m sad to report that you’re out of luck. Google says that the new Google+ apps for Android and iOS will be rolling out very soon, so sit tight.

Shameless plug: Follow us on Google+!
