Google has been adding new features to their Hangouts software for some time now, their latest is a new way for musicians to stream them playing live, called “Studio Mode” the new feature will allow users to optimise their live streams for music instead of a conversation:
“We wanted to make these live hangout concerts sound more like the stage, so today we’re rolling out Studio Mode. As a musician, all you need to do is start your Hangout On Air, click settings, and switch from Voice to Studio Mode.
Studio Mode optimizes your individual audio for music instead of conversation, and no else needs to change a thing! Check out the video with +Suite 709 to hear the difference (and for the full effect, listen with your favorite pair of headphones).” Said Matthew Leske on his Google+ page.
I have to say it really does make a difference, as Matt said check out the +Suite 709 video below to see it in action.
