Earlier today Google announced that Google Hangouts On Air will be avalible for all Google+ users. Hangouts On Air allows Google+ users to broadcast live to an audience while recording to their personal YouTube Channel. Select Google+ users have been able to use Hangouts On Air for some time now and have helped Google bring this exciting new feature to the masses. Selecting the “Broadcast publicly” option on starting a Hangout allows people to view the broadcast within the Google+ stream, on YouTube, or on the creator’s website. The number of viewers is displayed and updates throughout the production.



Today we're excited to launch Hangouts On Air to Google+ users worldwide. So if you have something to say—as an aspiring artist, a global celebrity, or a concerned citizen—you can now go live in front of a global audience. With just a few clicks, you’ll be able 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.
