Google To Cancel Hangouts On Air

Same service, different location

This just in, Google will not be using Hangouts On Air anymore for livestreaming starting this September – but it wont be completely gone. They will be combining it with YouTube Live. Users will start using YouTube Live from September 12th for all of their streaming content. Dont worry, if you have any scheduled events set after September 12th it will be automatically moved to YouTube Live. 


To set up an event on YouTube Live is the same as starting a Google Hangout; 

  1. Go to Live Streaming Events in Creator Studio
  2. Click New live event
  3. Select Quick
  4. Fill in your title
  5. Go Live Now or Schedule an Event
  6. Use Hangouts to broadcast


Fun Fact: Hangouts On Air was once used by The President of the United States Barack Obama and Pope Francis.
