    It definitely looks like these have potential. But I do wish there were more features — maybe a blackboard-type feature like Facebook Video Chat Rounds has (http://apps.facebook.com/chatrounds/?publisherid=elena&campaignid=BC&bannerid=0 ). That would be super useful for meetings and presentations.

  • We use Hangouts for twice-weekly team meetings with our folks in other parts of the US – works great, like the (newer) screen share. Now if I could just easily make it a little bigger!

  • hangouts are a great tool … you can now do in “virtual” life whatever you do in “real” life … there are almost no limits … you have a business in real life? … chances are you can do the same in hangouts to a WORLDWIDE audience … i have several ideas in that direction one of which i will put into reality not long from now …

    there are a few suggestions i’d have, to make hangouts more attractive to the business user …

    – more participants … for most purposes 10 participants in a hangout is enough (actually more would probably become uncontrollable in most cases), but there are situations where an increased number of participants would come in handy … e.g. business meetings for larger companies …

    – streaming and recording features … it is quite important for some business ideas, that the hangout sessions are recordable and some ideas (mostly sales) simply won’t work if you can’t reach a larger audience … there are work-arounds with third party services like camtasia, u-stream or life stream but it would be so much more comfortable to have these features integrated into hangouts directly …

    – sharing of documents … hangout with extras offers to be able to share documents as long as they are on google docs … it should be possible to share docs straight from one computer to another (like in most messengers) …

    these features would make hangouts much more attractive for business users (and they again bring private users to google+) … G+ is an exiting new playground with fantastic tools and i’m ready to explore it and use it to bring great services to great people …
