Find your Hangouts after switching to the new Google+: http://hangouts.google.com , Gmail or Chrome App or Extension

If you've just started using the new Google+ interface, and you are wondering about how to get to Hangouts, here's an overview.

My own preference is the Chrome Hangouts app on my Chromebook. However, starting today there is a brand new Hangouts Extension experience, so I'm going to give that a try.

The new G+ doesn't have built-in Hangouts. However, you can still access your Hangouts conversations on desktop:

> http://hangouts.google.com is the home of Hangouts.

Click the left menu to find your contacts or make a call

I personally use the Chrome Hangouts app with the transparent UI enabled , as I like to have chats visible on the desktop without having to switch to a different browser tab.

If you are scheduling a Hangout on Air you have a couple of options

Update: as of September 12, 2016 all HOAs must be run through YouTube Live Events

> Open http://hangouts.google.com and click Hangouts on Air in the left menu (only works if you are broadcasting as a Google+ Profile, or are signed in directly to a Google+ Page)

> Schedule your HOA in YouTube Live Events ( http://www.youtube.com/my_live_events )

Instructions for setting up a Hangout on Air:

And, of course, you can switch back to "classic G+" by clicking the "Back to classic G+" link on the lower left corner of any page on Google+.
