Google had offered the ‘Hangouts on Air’ feature to a limited number of Google+ users. And now, the company has rolled out the feature to the entire user base of its social network. This feature is really cool and very useful in that it allows you to broadcast an event live from your YouTube channel as well as from the Google+ stream.
It allows not only live feed but also records that live feed to viewed later. According to Google, ” Broadcast publicly. By checking ‘Enable Hangouts On Air,’ you can broadcast your live hangout —from the Google+ stream, your YouTube channel or your website — to the entire world.
See how many viewers you’ve got. During your broadcast, you can look inside the hangout to see how many people are watching live.”
The feature is being gradually made available and will soon be available to all Google+ users around the globe. For such users who often share videos online, this can be an excellent opportunity to do so in real-time and then gain valuable feedback.
The best part is that while streaming it live, Google also keeps track of the feed, “Record and re-share. Once you’re off the air, we’ll upload a public recording to your YouTube channel, and to your original Google+ post. This way it’s easy to share and discuss your broadcast after it’s over.”
