Google+ Hangouts Now Initiated on Mobile Devices After Update, New Galaxy Nexus Ad Shows It Off

You have had the ability to join Google+ Hangouts from a mobile device for some time, just not initiate them or “Go live.” An update is in the works that will address this issue, giving you the power to video chat with your friends from any time or any place. You should see the new version pop up within the next few days. iOS versions are also in the works, just in case you know someone with one of those devices.

And to show you how amazing it will be to kick start Hangouts with your Galaxy Nexus – whenever you finally get one – this new ad has been released. Bohemian Rhapsody is go.

    The exhibit is  called "Picasso to Koons: Artist as
    Jeweler." You probably will 
    recognize the names of
    many of the more than one hundred artists  represented at the barbour
    show. Names like
    Georges Braque, Max Ernst,  Alexander
    Calder and Salvador Dali, Robert Rauschenberg and Louise Nevelson and barbour

      One hundred thirty of the rings, necklaces,
    brooches are from the collection of art expert Diane Venet. She helped
    to set  up the exhibit.

      Ms. Venet 
    met French sculptor Bernar Venet about twenty-six years ago. A short
    time  later, he gave her a piece of quilted
    designed as a ring. The ring celebrated the fact that they would soon be  married. Ms. Venet said it was the first
    piece of barbour
    quilted jackets
    artist’s jewelry she had ever had.

      As time 
    passed, Bernar Venet exchanged pieces with mens barbour
    artist friends
    who sometimes created jewelry.  Ms.
    Venet’s personal collection grew and grew, and she decided to exhibit it  with works of barbour
    the other artists.

    Hotchner is the director of the Museum   of Arts and Design. She  says the ladies barbour
    considers jewelry as one of the most important forms of art today. She
    notes  that a piece of jewelry
    kid’s barbour
    is not  just a small version of a sculpture.

    I have a Galaxy Nexus with Verizon as my carrier. I don’t have the hangout icon in Google+ Messenger. How do I initiate a hangout?

    These Galaxy Nexus commercials are really good and need to be shown more. Neither I nor anyone I know has ever been tempted to buy a Droid because of one of those idiotic Verizon ads. All they do is reinforce the misconception that all Android phones are “Droids.” Google really needs to start taking more control of Android. They should be telling Verizon what to do with the Galaxy Nexus, like Apple does with the iPhone. They should advertise the Nexus phones as well as Android in general. Do that, and they might finally pull away some of the iSheep.

    Hook me up with that hot blonde in the photo.  Do it.

  • Time for these commercials to get on prime time TV instead of the Droid ones!

    can you split the screen to view all you contacts at the same time?

  • I love the new ads from Google for the Nexus..It’s finally showing people that Android is part of Google. The whole  DROID  and the image it was given by Motorola in my eyes has tarnished the look of Android ..and this is coming from an OG Droid owner..Anytime someone asks me what i have for a phone or see’s mine and says “Oh you’re a Droid user?” I just reply..”No I’m an Android user”..I know once I own a Nexus I’ll encounter more stupid questions and the ever popular “Dude shoulda got a 4S kehd!..We could face time and use siri”…smh..

  • If you guys havent noticed ,that same hangout button is now on the Chrome Talk chat window. Right next to Call and Add as Contact.

    The end of the video, where you see the Galaxy Nexus logo and under it you see “Pure Google.” That part made me shed a little tear. Something tells me we won’t be picking them up tomorrow.

    I have to say, Google’s knocking it out of the park with these ads. Motorola, Apple, are you taking notes? (I kind of hope Apple isn’t.)

    Still, I have to say I enjoy the Samsung ads, too. Moto’s Droid ads are just silly.

    • EC8CH

      yes, the hangouts ad have been cheesy but ina good way


    awesome@ gplus gets better and better

  • I hate you Verizon.

  • Benjamin Mackie

      I think at this point when it comes to any GNEX post, I go straight to the comment sections lol.

        G-Nex delays cause a lot angst, but they bring out the best in the comments.

          Sadly, they’ve brought out the worst in comments as well.

      Yes, I’ve found that in my not so healthy gadget lust obsession with the GN, I’ve been checking every possible post in the tech blogs, and I stay for the comments, pure entertainment generated by anger/lust/hope/dissapointment/rage/disbelief, etc!

    OK, they just stole my idea of video chatting with all my friends and singing karaoke.  lol  I have to admit it was a cute video, with cute girls.

    Why aren’t they killing robots? I need to know that my phone can help me kill robots.

      We need some zombie killing phones. That would be a little more useful than killing robots, all you gotta do is walk up some stairs.

    Notice there is no Verizon backing at the end of the video…

      Probably a GSM version. That’s why it’s actually in people’s hands being used as opposed to in the back of a Verizon store collecting dust.

  • Scott Willenborg

    Nice boots!

    • EC8CH

      Killer Boots…. man

  • Son of a bitch…

  • What type of phone was that? Never seen anything like it before.  Sure would be cool to have one.

      So all they use is hipster chicks in commercials now? Same as those hispter kids in that annoying i*hone commercial.
