What Are Hangouts?
Google Hangouts are a way for you to video-chat with one or more people directly with other Google account owners. Besides video chats, you can also engage other members in group conversations, chat, and so much more. Take a look at Google’s Hangout video:
Pretty cool right? Hangout operators can also do “Hangouts on Air” and record the entire session directly to YouTube to share and view later which is an amazing feature. See how you can use Hangouts on Air by viewing this video by Google as well:
Make video calls to connect face-to-face
In the end, hangout possibilities are endless. Strike up a conversation with a group of people you find interesting, have weekend gatherings, heck, play a few games together in a hangout session.
The best part about hangout is, once you have a decent following, you can start your own hangouts and make yourself an authority on a topic that interests you. If you know a topic extremely well and want to share your knowledge, starting hangout sessions might be your ticket to fame on Google Plus.
Turn one-on-one or group conversations into live face-to-face video calls with up to 10 people at once. Catch up with friends and family even when you’re on the go, all for free.
