What are Hangouts On Air?
Hangouts On Air is one of the latest additions to Google+. As you most-likely know, Google+ Hangouts is an exciting video chat platform that Google rolled out in 2011. You can have up to 10 people in a Google+ Hangout and all ten are connected together through audio and video. Since then they have gone to launch Hangouts On Air, which lets you broadcast your Hangout to the world. So even though you can only have 10 people in a Hangout, with Hangouts On Air, you can broadcast your Hangout and anyone with the link can watch. This is a fantastic tool for meetups, meetings, trainings, and the like. You are even able to use screencast to show your computer screen to your viewers, allowing you to take advantage of a powerpoint presentation. It’s very similar to your own online webinar.
