New to Google Hangouts

So you've been invited to a Google Hangout. You think you want to go but you've never done it before.  

Have no fear, I'll walk you through it step by step.

Before you do anything else, take a moment now to complete step 1.

Step 1 - Installing the Google Voice & Video Plugin

Even if you think you might have this installed, do it again to receive the latest software version.

install for Google Plus Hangout

When it has been installed successfully, you'll arrive at this page:

Step 2 - Accepting a Google Hangout Invitation

Here's a look at what to expect.

  • First you'll get an email invite from me in your inbox ~
  • Open it and then, click the red Are you going? button in the email.

  • You be taken to Google+ Hangout page where you can accept the invitation ~
  • Click on the blue Are you going? button in the middle of the invitation and say "YES!" 

  • The next time you go to the invite page { if it is before the scheduled time } it will look like this:
    ( Notice how cool I am, it is me, myself and Irene in this little hangout.  )

Step 3 ~ Joining a Google Hangout

When you go back to the event page, at the time of the Google Hangout (from the link in your email invitation), you'll see the blue Join hangout button ~

Just Click that button to join us! 

(Note: If this is the first time a Hangout has occurred on your computer & you didn't complete step 1 yet, you'll be prompted to download the software first...)

If you happen to be the 1st to arrive, come on in and I'll be there shortly!

NOTE: Don't worry, you'll have an opportunity to set up your microphone and webcam before you go live!

So, if it is a private Hangout it will look like this!

And If it is a public Hangout you'll see something like this:

That's it ~ Looking forward to connecting with you on Fridays!
