Hangouts On Air has moved to YouTube Live

As of September 12, 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

Learn how to set up Hangouts On Air with YouTube Live.

The following Hangouts On Air features are not available on YouTube Live:

  • Q&A
  • Showcase
  • Applause
