Hangouts Overhauled with Mobile, On Air, Doc Integration, and More

On the Google Blog today, Google announced the launch of Mobile Hangouts, Hangouts on Air, and many other Hangout extras.

Currently Mobile Hangouts support Android 2.3+ with iOS support “coming soon.” Be on the lookout for an update to your Google+ app in the Android Market

As the feature rolls out, you’ll also notice a sexy new redesign in your browser.

Additionally Google announced that you can broadcast live to Youtube. Available initially to only a few select Google+ members, anyone can “tune in.”

Finally, many extras have come to Hangouts such as Screensharing, Sketchpad, Google Docs, and Named Hangouts.

It’s a huge overhaul. Expect a more in-depth analysis as we test out these features. What do you think of the changes? I know I’ve been dying to have them. Let us know in the comment section below!
