Google Hangout is a very VALUABLE FREE tool, you can setup meetings with anybody in the world, they could be private or public!
In this tutorial I describe step by step how to setup and run Google Hangouts on Air, live stream/broadcast them, and have them recorded and share with people who missed the live presentation right away, there is also no time limit on how long you can record it…
Best alternative to running webinars because it’s a free service and you can also share your screen, view up to 10 people inside and unlimited amount of people can watch it. You can share your screen, share documents, watch YouTube videos together and more!
“Hangouts” are places used to facilitate group video chat (with a maximum of 10 people participating in a single Hangout at any point in time). Only Google+ users can join the “Hangout” if they happen to possess the unique URL of the Hangout. On August 18, 2011 Google added a new addition to “Hangouts” – clicking on the Share button under any YouTube video reveals an icon that suggests watching the video with friends in a Google+ hangout.
