'Hangout' button on YouTube videos lets Google+ users share videos with their friends.

Now underneath every video on YouTube, which Google owns, members of Google+, the search giant’s new social network, can click an icon to start a ‘hangout.’

Users need to click the share button under a video – which then reveals a little icon with a sign next to it saying: “Watch with your friends. Start a Google+ Hangout.” The addition is being seen as a drive to boost the new social network’s numbers and interaction levels. The embedding of the tool is designed to make it easier to watch videos on YouTube with friends. Emma Barnett/The Telegraph.
