Quick Google Hangouts

Recently I've been needing to do some video conferencing at work. "Google Hangouts" has been the video conferencing app of choice. For the uninitiated it can be difficult to figure out how to start a hangout for a group of people on video chat.

It's quite simple really. Just go to https://plus.google.com/hangouts/_ and you'll be redirected to a new google hangout. The ID will be appended to the end of the URL which will look something along the lines of https://plus.google.com/hangouts/_/abc123abc123abc123abc123abc123.

You can then copy and paste the generated URL to share it with anyone who should join the call.
