Google has introduced a brand new option for all those inquisitive webmasters who would like to be the first one's to find out about the changes that are made to the +1 button.

Within just few days into announcing faster load time for +1 button, Google is now inviting individuals from across the globe to seize the unique opportunity to sign up for their Google+ Platform Preview. This will let you test the updates even before they are rolled out for other users on your website.

So, how does this work? When you log on the account you are signed-up with, visiting the pages on your website with +1 button will let you preview the most recent releases.

Google's Joshua Ganderson, cordially lures you into the +1 world by saying “ If you join now, you’ll be able to test the first set of updates we’ve released to Platform Preview: hover and confirmation bubbles.”

The way that this feature works is, on hovering your mouse over a +1 button you will be able to see a bubble which will notify you about what will happen if you were to click it

And clicking it will get you a confirmation that your intended +1 has been enforced

So, what is the benefit of this added feature? Joshua asserts, “This will give your site’s users an extra reminder of the account they’re using to +1, as well as the fact that their +1 is public.”

And, for receiving more updates about the +1 button, you can also subscribe to the Google Publisher Buttons Announce Group.
