Posted on Jan 19 2012 - 7:26am by Editorial Staff

Google+ has long been the place to share and interact with friends either through using Hangouts or watching YouTube Videos. The company move a step further and announced its new feature, letting you allow to record and share videos of yourself using your webcam.

The feature was announced by Shana Gitnick, an engineer on the Google+ Photos team on her Google+ page. To get started with the feature, click the video icon in the share box and choose Record Video. Once you’ve authorized Flash to access your camera, you can start recording. And, once you’re done, the video appears as an attachment to your post – ready to roll-out in within your circles.

The feature isn’t new on the web-o-sphere but Google might be adding this new “video” feature, considering it as an essential part of the overall Google+ experience. The site’s Hangout video conferencing feature and deep YouTube integration make the site an almost-unique social destination.

Earlier, on January 18, Facebook too made a big announcement at their f8 developers’ conference that it is coming with their newest improvements to Facebook communication with group chat and video calling.
