Google+ Hangouts Now Lets You Share Your Screen And Make Screen Faces


Hangouts are great for spending time together, as well as doing things together. And today Google is adding apps to Hangouts since launch — from YouTube to screensharing to Google Docs. Today Google is introducing a starter set of featured apps, and enabling developers to share any hangout app with the entire Google+ community!


Now when you start a hangout, you’ll notice a new "Apps" button at the top of your screen. Once inside you’ll see both Featured and Recent hangout apps, including:


1) +Aces Hangout, for playing poker with friends, face-to-face-to-face

2) Clubhouse Challenge by +Bravo, for testing your pop culture IQ against other teams

3) +Cacoo, for wire-framing, mind-mapping and diagramming with others

4) Google Effects, for trying on headwear, eyewear or facial hair

5) +Scoot & Doodle, for drawing and coloring with the people you care about

6) +SlideShare, for co-viewing presentations, docs and videos


Beyond these featured items, we’re making it easy for any developer to distribute hangout apps across Google+. Just post a link to your app, and users can click to add it to their hangout. It then appears in “Recent” for all their future hangouts. Our Google+ Developers blog has more details
