Google+ Hangouts on Air Embedded on a Website (Credit: Droiddog)

Last year Google introduced Google+ Hangouts on Air to a limited amount of people, allowing them to go live with friends or followers for the whole world to see. Today Google has released the feature to everyone.

Official Google Blog:

Today we’re excited to launch Hangouts On Air to Google+ users worldwide. So if you have something to say—as an aspiring artist, a global celebrity, or a concerned citizen—you can now go live in front of a global audience. With just a few clicks, you’ll be able to:

  • Broadcast publicly. By checking “Enable Hangouts On Air,” you can broadcast your live hangout—from the Google+ stream, your YouTube channel or your website—to the entire world.
  • See how many viewers you’ve got. During your broadcast, you can look inside the hangout to see how many people are watching live.
  • Record and re-share. Once you’re off the air, we’ll upload a public recording to your YouTube channel, and to your original Google+ post. This way it’s easy to share and discuss your broadcast after it’s over.

We can’t wait to see what you’ll share with the world.

Great work Google!
