Last week we wrote about a temporary hangout link to launch hangouts. We also mentioned that new links are under works by Google+ team.
The good news is they have announced two new hangout links: One to start a regular hangout and the other to start hangouts on the air (broadcasting live) hangouts.
Link to create and start a regular hangout
Link to create and start hangouts on air (HOA)
If you hangout a lot then these two links will be very handy without going through the jumps and hoops to launch hangouts. Enjoy!
