Danny points out that also available today is the ability to search through Google+ content and:
- Participate in Google Hangouts from smartphones. As of today, only available on Android 2.3 phones.
- Ability to “Broadcast” a Hangout (aka On Air)
If your hangout reaches capacity others will be able to watch the discussion but not participate.
