Thanks +martin shervington, the text hangouts seem quite straightforward (although it seems I've had my notifications turned off).

I'm saving your post for later as it looks like there's quite a lot to take in on the group & video side of things.

Morning all!
I've got a busy morning of meetings, hangouts and podcasts.
Feeling rather chipper (hence the bright colours); surf's up too :D
Have an excellent day one and all.

Hangouts - new look on the page!
Thanks +Ronnie Bincer 
 
New look for Hangouts Page - added info and links to mobile app
The Desktop version of Google Plus now sports a new updated info panel and links to Mobile Hangout Apps.
Choose Hangouts from the left side dropdown menu and you'll see the new updated look for the Hangouts page. 

You can still Start a Hangout on Air (HOA) right from the first screen via the Blue Button, but you may need to slide down a bit to get to it. The link to get to the Hangouts page directly is https://plus.google.com/u/0/hangouts

Hangouts are the Magical Communication Tool offered by Google+ for video meetings, they can be private or public. If public, then they are commonly broadcast live as HOA and automagically recorded as videos on YouTube when you're done. 

The other version of Hangouts start up from that little green quote thing in the upper right of the page, but only for Profile accounts, not available for Page accounts. Those are little text/chat meeting rooms called Hangout Message Boxes (HMB). They can easily turn into a private Hangout Video Call with the click of a button among those invited into that HMB.

Google spent a hefty $3.2 billion on Nest back in January, so it only makes sense that the company would want to sell Nest's signature thermostat through its own storefront. And it's doing just...

Loved this place. Very cool bar, with super friendly bar and waiting staff. I especially liked the bar girl who looked like a pixie; cute and with some awesomely entertaining facial expressions. Can I say that on a Google Local review? Yes, yes I can. Anyway, this place has some style, good music and the clientele were lovely too. And it is dog friendly outside. Recommended. p.s. if the beautiful lady working behind the bar would like to give in touch then drop me an email to...ok, that would be a bit much, but yes I really should have asked you name and I hope you don't mind your me making your likeness to a pixie. You are especially adorable when you bite your lower lip after you talk. Really should stop this review now as it is getting a little gushing. Ok, I'm gone :)

The best fish tacos so far! I went with the grilled Mahi-Mahi with the spicy sauce (the one in the fridge). Love this place.

The best Indian restaurant in Bristol. I have eaten there...um...100 times+ over 12 years. The staff are so helpful and the food is so darn tasty. I tend to ask for "no oil" and they always make sure I am happy. What else is there to say? Just give it a go!
