Google Plus

Google today announced the addition of new features to Google+ Hangouts On Air. The new features includes rewind live broadcasts, access recordings immediately after your broadcast, watch higher quality Hangouts On Air on the go and start live broadcasts without having to refresh.  Here is what Google has to say about these new additions:

  • Rewind live broadcasts: Regardless when you start watching, you can always go back to the beginning.
  • Access recordings immediately after your broadcast: Once you’re no longer On Air, your recording will be waiting for you on YouTube.
  • Watch higher quality Hangouts On Air on the go: If you’re tuning in from your mobile device, you’ll notice better-looking video.
  • Start live broadcasts without having to refresh: When you visit a page with a Hangout On Air (like Events or YouTube), the video will begin playing as soon as the show starts — no refresh required.
