Google added a number of key features to its Google+ Hangouts live video chat Tuesday morning: Select users can now broadcast their Hangouts, which turns the intimate chat sessions into a live stream that can be watched by an unlimited number of participants. Hangouts are also now available to mobile users through the latest version of the Android Google+ app. Other new features include the ability to share your screen with other Hangout participants, and a Hangouts API.
