New Control Room feature to use for your Hangout On Air Broadcasts!
Moderate your Hangouts On Air with the new Control Room

When hosting a Hangout On Air, it’s important that you have the tools to create the best experience possible. This includes having the controls to adjust the audio and video levels of your participants so viewers can simply enjoy the show.

Today we’re rolling out the Control Room. Control Room allows the host to manage participants by adjusting their audio levels and hiding or revealing their video. You’ll find it in the sidebar of Hangouts On Air when it comes to your account in the next few days.

We hope this helps you deliver an even more professional broadcast to your audience. Give the Control Room app a try and let us know what you think!
