Bringing Google+ to work: Preview of enterprise features

We have now launched a preview of Google+ premium features in the administrator control
panel. Admins can setup default restrictions that will allow users in the domain to freely
exchange ideas and share information while keeping company information private.

Post Restrictions: Admins can set all new posts to be restricted within the domain by
default. Unless a user deliberately chooses to remove this restriction on a post, it cannot
ever be reshared outside the domain by anyone. External users cannot be added via
comments either. Note that a restricted post will always remain restricted. A post can only
be made public when it is first created.

Restricted Hangouts: When this feature is turned on, external users will only be able to join
a Hangout to which they are explicitly invited to. Everyone in the domain will always be
able to join any Hangout as long as they have the URL. Note that this is a default. Users can
always make Hangouts public.

Three Gmail labs graduation into standard features

We've graduated three labs, Refresh POP accounts, Filter import/export and Navbar drag and drop.

Refresh POP accounts: Clicking the refresh link at the top of your inbox will now not only update your inbox with your new Gmail messages, but will also fetch messages from any other POP accounts which you have set up.

Filter import/export: From the Settings > Filters page you can download a file containing some or all of your filters or upload a file to create a set of filters all in one go.  This makes it easy to share filters with friends, backup filters for later and more.

Navbar drag and drop: If you use gadgets on the left-hand side of Gmail, you can now rearrange them with drag n' drop.
