Google Hangout on Air from Google+ Pages

For the GDG Boulder meetup this Thursday, I would like to broadcast a Google Hangout on Air from the GDG Boulder G+ Page so that the recorded video will be saved to the GDG Boulder YouTube account. Took me a while to figure out the steps, so I want to document them here.

Prerequisite: You need to have a YouTube channel already linked to your Google+ page.

Switch to the Google+ Page

On Google+, click on your photo on the top right corner and switch to use Google+ as the Page admin.

Select "Hangouts" on the drop-down

Hover on the drop-down on the left, select "Hangouts".

Select "Hangout on Air"

Now you are on the Hangouts page as the Page admin. Select "Hangouts on Air" from the top tabs and you can now create a Hangout on Air as the Page admin!

Here is the Hangout on Air I created:

After you created your Hangout on Air, don't forget to enable the Q&A app. You won't be able to do that after the Hangout started.

Happy broadcasting!
