Hangout in Google plus a very helpful app by Google. Multiple people can chat over video, while you are in a hangout and your friends are doing some crazy stuff, you’ll definitely hope if you would capture these great moments. Google says, yes. now you can. Capture is a hangout app by Google which lets you capture photos from the moments in the hangout.
The app is making its way to mobile as well, letting you shoot moments on the go. Google, as before has once again introduced a very nice feature for its users to capture memorable moments without no real effort. Jeremy Ng from Google said this today:
The challenge, oftentimes, is capturing your favorite moments as they happen, so today we’re introducing the new Hangouts Capture app. With it you can take pictures of your Hangouts-in-progress, including a number of features not available in the usual screenshot workarounds:
- Once you’ve opened the Hangouts Capture app, you can snap photos of your Hangout view with a single click
- All photos are saved to a shared album, visible only to other Hangout invitees
- You can view these photos while inside the Hangout, when browsing your photo albums, or by visiting the original Hangout post
- And, importantly, you’ll always know when the app is in use: when you join a Hangout, when someone opens the app, and whenever a picture is taken
The Hangouts Capture app will soon be available worldwide, so look for it the next time you join a Hangout. Together with Effects, YouTube and other apps, we hope you’ll find Hangouts an even better way to make memories together.
The design is as simple as a camera app on any android phone. What you have to do is simply open the app, wait for the perfect moment to come and snap, the photo is captured. There is no surprise for those whom photos are taken as everyone in the hangout know that who is using the app and taking photos. There were and are some extra tools to capture such moments but a built in tool is far better than an external app. Happy hangouts, tell us your views in comments.
