Public Video Broadcasting 'On Air' made easy via Google Plus, Hangouts

According to TechCrunch.com, on 14th December, Google announced some major improvements to the way Hangouts work — and how they’re being more deeply integrated into your Google+ stream.

The improved feature provides the addition of a ‘Hangout’ button beneath the various status and photo updates that you and your friends post. Click it, and the site will launch a Hangout specific to that status update — so you can chat live over video about the link, story, or photo that was just posted. Other users can join the Hangout by clicking on a link that appears in the post’s comment section.

‘On Air’ is ease-of-use so that it could get the attention of celebrities or political candidates who might, say, want to stream an impromptu live interview.

Currently in Cambodia, many people start using Google plus but it can't compare to facebook users due to most of Cambodian people use Google+ are tech. persons, university students and especially all their friends could be found on facebook. But with this feature, they will benefit a lot. How do you think?
