This weekend, some of the best bands in the world will take the stage at +Coachella for a weekend full of live music. Even if you’ll be watching from home, we have a surprise to bring you a little closer to the action.

+CHVRCHES, Zedd and other artists will jump into fans’ Google+ Hangouts live from backstage. Check the schedule on the Coachella YouTube channel below for artist meet-and-greets. Start a Hangout with your friends, and when the time comes, it may bring you face-to-face backstage and directly into the Coachella webcast!

Share links with your audience while webcasting via the new Hangouts On Air app, Showcase! 
 
Showcase content in Hangouts On Air

Hosting a Hangout On Air is a great way to connect with your audience. While viewers are tuned in, this is the perfect time to share or promote something related to the conversation. Using the new Showcase app, hosts can now direct viewers to websites, merchandise, YouTube videos, your Google+ profile and Google Play content, all in a rich display on the right-hand side of the Hangout broadcast. 

Now, anyone can host a live conversation and connect their viewers to a variety of related content. Take a look at how the cast of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes used the Showcase app to link to exclusive footage, movie tickets, and more (http://goo.gl/GngZvv). Also, check out how Common used the Showcase app to promote his new music video and to drive fans directly to the Play Store to purchase his new album in real-time (http://goo.gl/4QGi7O).
There are all kinds of ways to enrich your live conversations using Showcase. We’re excited to see what you’ll share in your next Hangout On Air. Give it a try today: http://goo.gl/oMXG1M !

Going to miss you boss!
 
And Then

Last month, my wife's uncle died in a tragic accident in LA when the bicycle he was using to get lunch was hit by a truck. At the memorial service his daughter relayed a very touching story. 

She said her dad (who was her best friend) called every day to talk. But instead of opening the call with the customary "How are you" or "What's going on", her dad always opened the conversation with "And then?" Her father viewed each conversation as a continuation of the last, and what pained her the most was that there were to be no more "and thens". I cried. 

Since then I've thought a lot about how similar this is to our life's endeavors. We pour our heart and soul into our work and it becomes something we love and cherish. But even the challenges we work on today will one day become "and thens" as we move on to the next. 

Today I'm announcing my departure from Google after almost 8 years.

I have been incredibly fortunate to work with the amazing people of Google. I don't believe there is a more talented and passionate collection of people anywhere else. And I'm overwhelmed when I think about the leadership of +Larry Page and what he empowered me to do while at Google. From starting Google I/O, to being responsible for all mobile applications, to creating Google+, none of this would have happened without Larry's encouragement and support.

I'm also forever in debt to the Google+ team. This is a group of people who built social at Google against the skepticism of so many. The growth of active users is staggering, and speaks to the work of this team. But it doesn't tell you what kind of people they are. They are invincible dreamers. I love them. And I will miss them dearly.

Finally, thank you to all those who I've met on Google+. The community here has been so supportive that I don't even know how to say thank you. You all make Google+. Without you, this social network wouldn't exist. Your support for Google+, and for me personally is something I will never forget. 

But, now is the time for a new journey. A continuation. An "and then". I am excited about what's next. But this isn't the day to talk about that. This is a day to celebrate the past 8 years. To cry. And smile. And to look forward to the journey yet to come.

And then....
+Vic Gundotra

What happens when you rebuild the QWERTY keyboard as a single row of type? A whole lot, actually.

There are other non-qwerty keyboards around, but I find that I would need to re-teach myself in order to use them.
