Cast your screen to a Hangouts video call

With this launch, signed-in Chrome users on Chrome 52 or higher will be able to use the “Cast…” menu item from Chrome to share the contents of a browser tab or their entire desktop into a Hangout. Hangouts that are scheduled on the user’s Google Calendar are shown automatically, but they can also be joined manually using the “Search” text box.

Add a Hangout video call to your Google Calendar event:

+Peggy K I've seen this option posted but I don't use Google Apps. Does this work for Hangouts on Air? If so where is the option to cast and how is it different from screenshare?

+Gary Solomon​ it should work for regular video calls, even if you don't use Google Apps. But I don't know if it will work with Hangouts on Air - I suspect not, because there is no way to add a HOA to a Google Calendar event.
 
+Peggy K that explains it! Do you know what advantage this has over screenshare which is available on regular video calls, too?
 
I think I can live stream a Hangout Video Call with the video on a tab appearing on the livestream in HD and the Hangouts participants can see and hear the video and can comment on it on my live stream. Just thought of that now.
I don't need an encoder now to livestream being that it's built-in to my graphics software. Things are changing daily.

+Craig Long​ that's neat. But most of us still need to use an encoder if we aren't running a HOA :-(
 
+Peggy K Wait till you can use Android apps on Chromebook. It should be easier.
