How to Share Documents in a Google+ Hangout

Google+ has added a useful new feature to Google+ Hangouts, allowing you to share documents inside a video chat on the social network.

Using the new tool, you could host a live video workshop with your writing group, work on a script with a friend or discuss line edits with your editor. The whole meeting can take place in a live video chat, allowing participants to join from around the country.

Is this something you would use with long distance writer friends? Check it out:

To try it out, just click on the new “Docs” button inside your hangout:
- you can add an existing document, or upload a new one
- added documents are available as a list on the left-hand side
- you can switch between and collaboratively edit multiple documents at once
As always, let us know what you think in the comments, or via the “Send feedback” button! (Via Social Times)
