How to Record Hangouts

Hangouts On Air

With Hangouts On Air, you can share and record your live discussions and performances with everyone. This feature lets you:

  • Broadcast: Invite circles or individual people to join you in a Hangout On Air, then broadcast it to the world. A live player of your broadcast will be posted to your Google+ Home page and YouTube channel.

  • Edit and share the recorded broadcast: Your Hangout On Air will be recorded as a public video and will be available on your Home page once the broadcast has ended. You'll also be able to edit the recording when the broadcast is over. If you edit your video, your post (including the video URL) will automatically be updated to show the edited version.

How to start using Hangouts on Air:

  1. Download and install the latest version of the plugin.

  2. Visit plus.google.com/hangouts

  3. Click Start a Hangout On Air.

  4. Give your broadcast a name and invite the people you want to join.

  5. Click Start Hangout On Air.

  6. Once everyone's joined and you're ready to go live, click Start broadcast at the top of the screen.

Once you click Start broadcast, you're officially "On Air" and the public will be able to watch your live broadcast.

The recording will be available on your Home page. You'll also be able to edit the recording when the Hangout On Air is over which will automatically update your post (and the video URL) to show the edited version.

When you're ready, visit your YouTube Video Manager to edit your video. To make changes to your video, try YouTube's video editor. For videos longer than two hours, you'll need to download, edit, and then upload the videos again to your YouTube channel. Learn more about how to download your video.
