Screen-Sharing Comes To Google+ Hangouts | Prionomy | Scoop.it

If you were waiting for Google to release a screen-sharing feature inside the Hangout real-time collaboration platform, that time has come.


In the next 48 hours Google will be rolling out to all Google+ users the ability to screen-share during any hangout session.


From Christopher Johnson G+ post: "When we launched Hangouts with Extras last September, we wanted to test new features and get feedback from users.


We’ve learned a lot over the past few months, and today we’re rolling out a new Hangouts look and feel that incorporates some of the “extras,” and better reflects Google’s overall design ( http://goo.gl/gG1NA ).


Highlights include:


- Screensharing: share what’s on your computer screen with everyone in the hangout. This is the first of many extras we’re graduating to Hangouts proper.


- Bigger video: we’ve put more emphasis on the live video itself by optimizing white space and other screen elements."
