It’s been nearly three months since Google first revealed their Google+ social network. Unlike some of Google’s past projects, Google+ seems like it’s actually connecting with people. Now Google is bringing Hangouts to a mobile device near you.
Although Google opened the Google+ gates to everyone earlier today, Hangouts got plenty of the attention. Android users can now initiate Mobile Hangouts on the go – and iOS support is on the way.
Google was sure to mention the newfound mobile support in today’s press release.
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.
