Google Hangouts On Air Moved to YouTube Live

Where’s Google Hangouts On Air?

On 12 September 2016, Hangouts On Air has moved from Google+ to YouTube Live. 

This means that:

You’ll schedule all Hangouts On Air events using YouTube Live, not Google+.

If you have Hangouts On Air events that were scheduled on Google+ on or after September 12, 2016, you’ll need to delete them and then recreate them on YouTube Live.

Switch to YouTube Live

With YouTube Live, you can still:

  • Start new Hangouts On Air events
  • See the Hangouts On Air events that happened before September 12, 2016
  • Schedule Hangouts On Air events for a later date and time
