Here are the highlights:
When viewing the stream for a particular circle, you’ll now see a slider at the top that lets you adjust how posts from that circle should be blended into the main stream. That way you’ll never miss a post from that special someone, and you can tweak these settings to form your own “perfect stream.”
More useful and attractive notifications - easy-to-read “sneak previews” that immediately present what’s new and why you might care and the ability to see the +1’s and shares your posts have received since you last checked.
Improvements to Google+ Pages -
You can now delegate up to 50 named managers as administrators for a page.
A new notification flow will ensure that these managers stay in the loop on all the activity that takes place on a page, giving managers the ability to stay involved in page conversations.
Aggregated count of users that have engaged with your page, either by +1’ing it or by adding it to a circle. This way, both you and your page’s visitors can get an at-a-glance summary of who is interacting with your page.
Viewing a photo in Lightbox has been completely redesigned with improved navigation, enhanced comment legibility and better overall utility. This design makes the photo the hero, letting the content itself shine through. A completely new photo-tagging experience that’s both fun and fluid, and lets you quickly focus on the people in your photos.

If you are using Google Chrome, you can donate to charities with just surfing. You don’t have to pay anything. The chrome for a cause extension will count your tabs while you browse the web. At the end of the day, you’ll be asked to choose a charity to receive your tabs. Every day between December 15 and 19 presents the chance to contribute your tabs, so you can choose to support the same charity or pick a different one each day.

The app syncs with your Google Music account, so there is no need to stream from a computer or download songs to the TV. Download the Google Music app for Google TV from Android Market, login with your account, and play your music library through your HDTV and home theater system.

Finally, atleast for the enterprise customers. Google sucks when it comes to support. I hope they expand this to Android and other products.

Google has introduced a new lab feature that brings the Thunrderbird/Outlook/iPad like preview pane window to GMail. To activate the preview pane, go to Labs under GMail settings and select enable for Preview Pane settings as shown in the picture below.
Once enabled, in the GMail page, you will see a button on the right – top which will let you toggle between No Split, Vertical Split and Horizontal Split. Selecting vertical will show the preview pane on the right and selecting Horizontal will show the preview pane at the bottom. This looks better with the new GMail ‘Preview’ theme.

Google announced a new service few months back called Google Cloud Print, which enables you to send documents to printers from any device and any OS without the need to install a software. Google is launching a beta version of Google Cloud Print to users in United States starting today that will work on most phones that support HTML5 like Android 2.1+ or iOS 3+.
To get started, you need to connect your printer to Google Cloud Print. This step can be performed only using Windows PC currently. Mac and Linux support are coming soon. Once you do the set up, to print, open your document in Google Docs or mail in GMail and select Print from the drop down menu. You can also print PDF files by clicking the Print link that appears next to them.
For more information, check the Google Cloud Print help here.

According to Google Operating System blog
Is that how Google is planning to generate revenue for it’s browser business similar to crapwares that Sony and other PC makers install in their system even if it’s of no use to the users? I think Google should provide an option in the installer to add or remove those games and any other crapware they are planning to add. I just recently changed my phone from Samsung Galaxy S to Droid X since Galaxy S carried lots of craps from Samsung and Verizon which you can’t uninstall. Droid X is bearable though it too carries some crap. I hope other browsers won’t follow Google and add crappy applications as part of the browser installation.

Google has introduced a new Android app called YouTube remote. YouTube Remote creates a virtual connection between your phone and YouTube Leanback. To ‘pair’ your phone with your Leanback screen, simply sign into YouTube Remote on your Android phone, and to YouTube Leanback on your Google TV or computer with the same YouTube account.
Once connected, you can use the rich browse and discovery interface on YouTube Remote to find and queue up videos to watch, and send them all to Leanback with a single tap. With YouTube Remote you can play, pause, skip forward and back and even control the sound volume.
