Google shuts down Hangouts on Air, in favor of YouTube Live : In 2011, Google+ launches its key feature, ‘Hangouts on Air’. When it was initially only available to some video-cast personalities, but with time, it gained increasing prominence. Finally, the tool was made publicly available.
This feature will no longer available on Google+ from the next month onward. After this, the Users will have to use YouTube Live for a similar broadcast in real-time experience.
In order to circulation online with YouTube Live, you will have to create a ‘Custom event’ or a ‘Quick event’ using the Creator Studio Tool of YouTube Live. You can choose to go live immediately or schedule one for later.
It looks like the company will ensure no leaves un-turned when it comes to moving away from Google+.
