Week in Review - July 2, 2016: Nougat, Google+5, Album Archive

Lots new this week in the Googleverse: Android N is officially Nougat, Google+ turned 5, the Google Album Archive launched (goodbye Picasa Web Albums), the new Google “My Activity” page shows your history, Google Small Business community has a new home and more!

There were also a number of updates on Facebook, Twitter, and Twitch for business, brands, live broadcasters, and writers.
