Weekly Update - December 31, 2016: Happy new year!

Happy New Year readers! I know this is posted a day late, but the upates are through the end of 2016.

I've posted my yearly reviews of the different Google products I follow, so if you want an overview of the year, that's the place to start:

The big themes: better communication from the different Google support teams (YouTube, AdSense),  re-designed interfaces (Google+, AdSense, Blogger, YouTube), benefits for Creators (YouTube and Google+) and finally, products finding the own way after Google+'s pivot (YouTube, Blogger, Hangouts, and yes, Google+ itself).

There weren't many updates this week, but there are still some tips for webmasters, Google+ers, YouTubers, Android fans, live broadcasters and more.

And a wee plug: Did Santa bring you a Pixel? Planning to try Project Fi? Get $20 off!
