Some reports appeared over the last couple of days that Google+ usage is declining. Today Google announces new features to keep us interested. One of the key features of Google+ is hangouts. The video conferencing service gets some great enhancements. You can now use your Android 2.3 device to use hangout. iPhone Hangout App is supposed to come soon.
Another feature is called Hangouts on Air that lets you broadcast your video session to anybody. Google will be hosting their very first On Air hangout with will.i.am on Wednesday night, September 21. For more information visit will.i.am’s profile on Google+.
But that is not all. Google also adds these features to Google+ hangouts:
- Screensharing: for when you want to show off your vacation photos, your high score, your lesson plan or whatever else is on your screen
- Sketchpad: for when you want to draw, doodle, or just scribble together
- Google Docs: for when you want to write, plan or present something with others
- Named Hangouts: for when you want to join or create a public hangout about a certain topic (like fashion or music or sports...)
