If youve ever participated in a Hangout on Google+ you know that the video conferencing feature works great! You can hangout with video and audio with up to ten people while also chatting and sharing video. Hangout also knows who is talking and puts them front and center. Theres no awkward handing over and collecting the microphone. It feels like others are really right there with you.
The problem with Hangout though is that it is hard to know who is hanging out and it is hard for people to know if you are hanging out. I wrote to Google and suggested that under the Hangout option there should be a list of people in your circles that are hanging out. I also suggested that you should be able to give your Hangouts a title. They havent incorporated my feedback yet, but in the meantime, theres one solution that may work.
