Google+ Officially Splits Into Photos And Streams

It would seem that Google+ has a new boss and has been officially split into Photos and Streams.

That's not to say that Google+ is dead yetآ—at least not officially. But it does suggest that Google is moving away from the pure Plus branding, which suggests an overhaul may be not too far off. Indeed, last week, speaking to Forbes, Google's senior vice president of products Sundar Pichai, said that "I think increasingly you'll see us focus on communications, photos and the Google+ Stream as three important areas, rather than being thought of as one area." Clearly, this news separates out Photos and Stream, with the communications elementآ—presumably Hangoutsآ—already a separate entity.
