Recently Google stopped it ‘Google Talk’ service and replaced it by ‘Google Hangout’. It’s an integrated way of chatting, voice talks and video talks on all your devices. The nice thing is you can continue your conversations form your PC to your Smartphone to your tablet. It has the ‘traditional’ way of adding friends, which is linked to your Google+ circles. You can also start and join public hangouts.
These public hangouts can be watched by anyone with a Google+ account and are hosted on YouTube. They can be interactive or just for watching. It’s a very nice way of holding online seminars or film your offline event and stream it online for free. Hosts of events, definitely have a look at this!
I personally used Google Hangout many times since for ‘chats’. Also checked out some public hangouts today. Some interesting stuff to watch!
