Let’s Hangout On The iPhone

20110924-003918.jpg

Google + has just rolled out a massive update to it’s iOS app which now allows users to take part in hangouts using the front facing camera on their iOS device.

I was a bit sceptical on how well this would work, however it is pretty awesome. I took part in my first hangout using the iPhone a few minutes ago and the video and audio quality was fantastic.

“Huddles” have also been renamed “Messenger” and the ability to share pictures in chats has been added, along with better push notifications.

Beat that one Facebook !
