Google Shopping added two new features to help better find the reviews to make shopping decisions.

The first feature launches today lets "you see if a product you're looking for has been reviewed by someone you know. And, the second enables you to write product reviews on Google Shopping, to help friends and other Google users make smart purchases," google stated.

Read reviews from people you know feature lets you easily see if someone you've connected with on Google has reviewed a product that is in your Google Shopping search results. "When you click on a particular product and scroll down to the 'Reviews' section, reviews from your friends and contacts will appear at the top of the list," explains Google.

Share your own reviews feature lets you write a review, "just login with your Google+ account, click on the product you'd like to review, then click the 'write a review' button at the top of the page."

"Once you submit your review, it will be publicly available to anyone who views that product on Google Shopping. You can also choose to post your review to your Google+ stream," Google added.

And, of course, when people who are connected to you search for or click on that product, your review will be highlighted.
