Google has this week started rolling out their Google+ Hangout On Air broadcasting features to Google+ users worldwide. Allowing any Google+ users to setup their own Hangout and go live in front of a global audience.
Since its launch last year Google+ Hangouts On Air has been restricted to a number of test broadcasters. But now the features have started to roll out worldwide, and will be available to all Google+ users over the next few weeks.
The new features within the Google+ Hangouts On Air include the ability to :
– 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.
– 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.
