Hangout apps

I’m a big fan of Google Hangouts, partly because the sound and video quality is great and partly because of the many tools it offers such as screen sharing, live broadcasting, automatic recording and sharing on Youtube (great for lectures) and so on.

There is also a growing number of Hangout apps – like extensions for hangouts that add further functionality, such as remote assistance, allowing you control someone else’s computer (with their permission), for example to help them fix a computer problem (my mum will be so happy). Some of them are interesting from a language learning point of view as well, such as captions, translations, and even special language hangout apps…Check it out.
