Once I've chosen the Draw App, a gray border appears around the videos in Hangouts.  Is there a way to remove the gray border when not using the Draw App?

I have a question about security. If phone records are court ordered, can Hangout messages be read?  Will the times two people sent messages to each other, be detailed in the phone records?

Google+ Communities and Hangouts on Air (HOA) can work quite well together... watch this HOA on the topic to learn more.
 
Community Centered Hangouts on Air - why you'll want to use them
This public HOA training session will take a close look at proven techniques to build an engaged community utilizing the power of Hangouts on Air (HOA).

We'll be joined by +Pat Richley-Erickson &+Russ Worthington who have taken this technique to a fine art and increased engagement and numbers of members in their DearMYRTLE's Genealogy Community using the power of Community Centered Hangouts on Air.

Also in the filmstrip will be +Heather Kraafter &+Michael Daniels, both of whom are part of the team that developed the methods this Public Community started out with before they fully refined it for their own purposes.

All those listed above are part of the Hangout Mastery private membership community where wonderful things like this are developed and tested. To join us in the private membership visit www.bit.ly/HangoutMastery

By the time this HOA goes live we will have completed our private training on the why and how to make this work inside the Hangout Mastery areas and the video of that session will be archived for all existing and future members to watch as often as they like.

And if you're interested in taking your Hangouts to the next level, please join us in the month to month membership community by visiting:

Hangouts For Business  - 
 
Hi Everyone,

 I've been using skype for business voice-only conference calls but we're beginning to hit the upper limit of user numbers (25). I have found that Google Hangout video calls have a maximum of 10 (or 15 for business) but I can't find any limits for voice-only calls. Is there one? Is it the same as video calls? And finally, if there is a limit and I need more than 25 participants, can anyone recommend an option to handle this?

  Thank you!

Hi Everyone
To improve my appearance in Hangouts I bought a Logitech c930e webcam for my Macmini. However when I tried it the image quality is poor, even though it should be HD. I've reviewed the Logitech forum and Mac info in terms of downloading software etc but haven't been able to improve it.
Any tips for making the most of this webcam on my MacMini which is running OS 10.10.2?
Thanks in advance

Hi, I'm presenting on Using Google Hangouts in the classroom at the MACUL Educational Conference in Detroit on Friday morning, 3-20-15 at 8:30 - 9:30 EST.  I'm looking for a classroom, educator, or other person  to Hangout with as a short demo (a few minutes.)  Ideally I'd connect with someone typical of whom educators might want to connect with (like a park ranger, or another elementary classroom.)   I'm involved with the conference today; it might be best to email me directly if you are available and what to help.  Thanks!  amann@muskegonisd.org

Having issues with the Hangout Windows client. When operational, Hangout messaging does not work (unless I close the Windows client). Only the Hangout Web client seems to function under Google Mail. I have tried uninstalling, but when Chrome launches, so does Hangouts. As shown, the Hangout Windows icon looks like it is partially in the background of every running application.

The only thing I haven't done is uninstall / reinstall Chrome.

Hangouts on Air and Your G+ Community...
Used properly, Community Centered HOAs can add great value to your community.

Read more below and watch the linked free broadcast to see what we're talking about utilizing a valuable/unique implementation of HOAs in a Public Community setting.
Ronnie Bincer originally shared to Google Hangouts Help:
 
Do you use Hangouts on Air as part of your Community Strategy?
Why would you want to use Community Centered HOAs?

Is your Google+ Public Community growing like you'd want it to be, or as engaged as you'd like? If not, utilizing Community Centered HOAs (CCHOAs) can make a big difference towards those goals.

When you utilize Community Centered Hangouts on Air you can:
► Increase the Size of your community
► Add value to your Brand
► Improve your community's Engagement
► Increase the Value of your community
► Help Focus the community
► Fully realize the Relationship Opportunities communities offer

Hangouts on Air (HOA) can add great value to the relationships we are fostering within Google Plus Communities. That value can be helpful to existing and new members of the community.

Live Discussion on Why CCHOAs are so Powerful
We'll be having a live video broadcast (HOA) discussing the use of CCHOAs within a community and why they seem to add so much momentum to a community on Tuesday April 28, 2015 @ 4pm EDT. Here's the link to sign up to view the free broadcast (either live or the recorded version) http://goo.gl/I8V3UA

Hope you can make it live and will add questions/comments for us to feature as part of the broadcast, but if you must miss the live event, you can always watch the free video replay on that same HOA Event page: http://goo.gl/I8V3UA

Add the Community Centered HOA concept to your Community!
Turn your Google+ Community into the thriving place it was meant to be by employing the techniques and concepts we'll be highlighting in this Scheduled HOA Event: http://goo.gl/I8V3UA RSVP there.

Hangouts on Air Hosts can use the Cameraman App to help control what live viewers see and what the recorded video shows.
Ronnie Bincer originally shared to Google Hangouts Help:
 
Controlling the Broadcast Camera for Hangouts on Air
There are many ways that the Hangout on Air (HOA) Host can control what the live viewers see and what the recorded video shows for their HOA Broadcasts.

Using the Cameraman App is just one of them, but it is an option that gives HOA Hosts important controls like showing the filmstrip or not and hiding or showing guests at certain times. The Cameraman app is working behind the scenes when you use the highlighted thumbnail menus in the attached screenshot to show or hide guests in the broadcast.

To understand all the various options for controlling the HOA Broadcast Camera, you'll want to watch both hour long presentations (part 1 & part 2) made for Hangout Mastery members.

For only $47/month Hangout Mastery members gain access to scores of private training videos like Controlling the HOA Camera.

Members can get access to this series by clicking this link:
http://www.mastery.thehangouthelper.com/controlling-the-hoa-camera-part-1/

To join us in the membership community for fast and accurate answers to your Hangouts questions as well as access to live & recorded training sessions, signup at www.bit.ly/HangoutMastery

May your HOA presentations be a wonderful way for you to communicate your message... they can be that for you once you master the technology which is why we made the Hangout Mastery membership. Hope to see you there!

Is it possible you received a defective unit? If you are able to, test your device on a PC and see if it behaves differently. Return/exchange if the problem follows the camera.

Hi there, When I go to start a hangout on my business page (this one) it gives me the error "Couldn't start the video call because of an error.
Please try again in a few moments."  when I start on my personal account it works.  Any ideas or suggestions?

Important tip if you use Comment Tracker and the Lower Third together for your Hangouts on Air.
 
Using Comment Tracker & the Lower Third Together
The Hangout Toolbox's Lower Third app is commonly used together with the stand-alone Comment Tracker app. Here's a tip for using them together well.

The Comment Tracker adds great value to your HOA by allowing you to bring live viewer's comments into your show.

The stand-alone Comment Tracker tool (the green 'double bubble' version, not the one from the Toolbox) is used a lot since it allows the comments from HOA Events to be tracked where the version of the Comment Tracker that is part of the Hangout Toolbox does not.

The Comment Tracker Tip - load up the (1) Toolbox/Lower Third 1st and then turn on the (2) Stand-alone Comment Tracker tool. When done in this order, the display of the Comments (as shown here) will not include the lower third image.

If you want to add the branding of your lower third on top of the comments displayed, then turn on the comment tracker first, and there is a good chance the comments displayed will also show the lower third graphic as well (but it may cover up some of the comments).

Thanks to +Denise Wakeman for her cameo here ;-)
You can get the stand-alone comment tracker from this link:
http://www.allmyplus.com/comment-tracker/ it is created by +Gerwin Sturm ... Thanks Gerwin!

We offer full training on how to Master the Comment Tracker App (it can get kinda tricky making it work with events) as part of the many training sessions offered to Hangout Mastery members.

Join us in the Hangout Mastery membership to get the Comment Tracker training and much more by visiting www.bit.ly/HangoutMastery and signing up for membership.

Get the training you want from the large list of recorded and live training sessions, and join into the included private Community. Stay around as long as you like with our monthly membership model & you can cancel at any time. Hope to see you on the inside!
