Google Hangouts updated, join a Hangout on Air from your iOS device

Google Hangouts for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch has just seen a tasty little update released that will help you broadcast on the go. Hangouts on Air is Google's live broadcasting system that sends the feed out via YouTube – indeed, the Mobile Nations live podcasts have just switched to using this – and with the latest update you can join one right from your iOS device.

Also, as you may expect, a smattering of bug fixes and performance improvements are also thrown in that you may or may not notice. If you're a frequent Hangout on Air user though, let us know how you're finding being able to do it from your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.

Google forces you to have a Google + account to use Hangouts. No thanks.

Richard Devine says:

Hangouts is built into the Google+ platform, so you need one to be able to use it.

And I assume that you, snookasnoo, don't have a Gmail or a YouTube account? If so, you simply use that login and you're there. You don't have to build a profile to have a Google+ account. You can have no picture, no feed, nothing, and simply have a login to be able to use that service.

Totally up to you.

Get edumacated, my friend ;)

It works well but we can't see the chat screen side by side with the video screen. What are we doing wrong?
