Google continues to add more awesomeness to its flagship social network Google+, and this time it has chosen its already cool and popular Hangouts for the new additions, thereby making it better and much more useful.
Let us check out the new Hangout features that is going to be available to every Google+ user around the world very soon.
Web Broadcast and YouTube Upload
Everyone can now go on Air using Google+ Hangouts. You could broadcast to the world using the broadcast and record option that you should see soon, and once your broadcast is over, the entire recording of that broadcast gets uploaded as a private video to your YouTube account. Cool, isn’t it?
Move From Text to Video in Conversations
You can easily switch to a hangout from a text conversation in Google+ from now on. As you see in the screenshot above, all it takes is a click on the Hangout link. This feature will also be available on Google+ for Android.
Dial-in to Telephones All Over the World
You can now dial-in to phones around the world from Google+, just like you can from Gmail. The calling to US and Canada is free and the ones to international destinations are priced reasonably.
Better Hangout Notifications
You’ll see more live hangouts in the sidebar and get notifications on desktop and mobile when someone invites you to a hangout.
And lastly, you can have more fun by adding virtual horns to faces of people with whom you are having hangouts. Overall, Google+ Hangouts is just getting better and better, don’t you think?
