Designed for Google+ users that love to video chat with their friends and family, Google released a new version of the mobile application that supports Hangouts, Events and the iPad.
According to a post on the official Google blog earlier today, Google has launched an update to the iOS version of the Google+ application for both the iPhone and iPad. Including within the updated application, Google+ users can launch or join a Hangouts video chat with up to nine friends on either platform. Within the settings, users have the ability to setup push notifications when invited to a hangout.
This plays a ringing sound to notify someone about a video chat. When a user invites a friend to a hangout, the user also has the option of ringing their friends in order to get them to join the video chat. If someone misses a hangout notification, they can simply call the Google+ user back to connect in a new video chat. If the Google+ user also has an Apple TV, the entire video chat can be streamed to the television in the living room via AirPlay.
The updated software also offers Events support on the iPhone to browse upcoming and past events as well as create new events. When creating a new Google+ event, the application uses location data to automatically fill out the GPS location of the event. In addition to setting up a title and description, the Google+ user can also choose from a variety of preset theme pictures to go with the event.
