Google+ Hangouts is Coming Soon to iOS

Google announced numerous updates to Google+ today and revealed that Hangouts will be coming soon to iOS. Here’s a quick overview of the announcement.
Hangouts on your phone
Today we’re launching it on the one device that’s always by your side: your mobile phone. To get started, simply find an active hangout in the Stream, and tap “Join”:
Hangouts currently supports Android 2.3+ devices with front-facing cameras (and iOS support is coming soon). The new mobile app is rolling out to Android Market today, so you can start hanging out at any time, from just about anywhere.

Hangouts On Air
Sometimes you want to speak to a large audience, or alternatively, view as a spectator. In these cases a public broadcast is what’s needed, so today we’re introducing Hangouts On Air.
The setup is simple enough: just start a normal hangout, and you’ll have the option to broadcast and record your session. Once you’re “On Air,” up to nine others can join your hangout (as usual), and anyone can watch your live broadcast.

Hangouts with extras
We’re previewing some extras, including:
● Screensharing: for when you want to show off your vacation photos, your high score, your lesson plan or whatever else is on your screen
● Sketchpad: for when you want to draw, doodle, or just scribble together
● Google Docs: for when you want to write, plan or present something with others
● Named Hangouts: for when you want to join or create a public hangout about a certain topic (like fashion or music or sports…)

Hangouts APIs
We’re also releasing a basic set of Hangouts APIs. If you’re a developer who wants to build new kinds of apps and games (and who-knows-what-else), then you can find more details on the Google+ platform blog.
Search in Google+
Today we’re bringing Google’s search expertise to Google+. Just type what you’re looking for into the Google+ search box, and we’ll return relevant people and posts, as well as popular content from around the web.
+Everyone
Anyone can sign up for Google+-no invitation required.
