Google rolled out a handful of updates to Blogger.com, all of which are available to everyone right now. Here's the rundown:

Favicon graduates from Draft
Announced in June, on the Blogger in Draft, now the team offer an easy tool for creating custom favicons on your Blogger blog. And, also, this feature is available to all Blogger users.

Since the initial release to Draft, the Blogger.com added support for all image types (JPEG, PNG, GIF, etc) and will now automatically resize the image to the correct favicon specifications. You can add a custom favicon to your blog right now on the Design | Page Elements tab, via the new favicon element," informs Brett Wiltshire, Product Operations.

Swipe navigation for Mobile views
Adding to the featureset of new mobile templates, you can now navigate through your mobile view with swipe navigation. This new navigation option lets you swipe through individual blog posts in a way that should feel very familiar for mobile and tablet users. If you are viewing this post from a mobile device, you can give this a try right now!

Support for +1 on Pages
A few weeks ago, Google announced the +1 button on Blogger, and today, the team has expanded the coverage to individual pages as well as blog posts. The +1 button will now appear on Pages as an option on the sharing widget just as it has appeared for individual blog posts," wrote Wiltshire.
