Watch live events on Google

For some events, you'll see an option to join a YouTube live event or Hangout on Air from the search results page.

Watch a live event

  1. Up to 3 hours before the event, go to and search for the event or the name of anyone in the event.
  2. To be taken to the event page, click Watch live event.
  3. If the event is happening now, you can watch it live by touching the play icon .
  4. If the event is happening later in the day, click Yes under "Are you going to watch?" to add the event to your Google Calendar.

Note: This is still an experiment, so you won't always see the "Watch live event" option.
