G+ finally adds Hangouts On Air

Google announced today that it has finally added one of the coolest features for G+, Hangouts On Air. While you been able to hold Hangouts on your own for awhile, streaming them live was only accessible to a chosen few. Now, we can all use it.

I like the potential to use G+ Hangouts On Air for recording “Speaking in Tech” podcasts but I’m still not certain it’s a good fit… yet – there is still the challenge of pulling the audio in a good format for iTunes. We could simply record the Skype call as usual for the audio portion but that seems unnecessarily redundant. Still, I’m going to find some ways to experiment with it.
