Google Plus Hangouts gets a YouTube app for watching videos together!

Google has rolled out a new app on their Google+ Hangouts platform.

Users can now share videos or playlists from YouTube inside a hangout. The idea is to watch the awesome videos on YouTube together while having a conversation.

Google spoke about this new feature:

Create, control, save and even share playlists of videos with your friends—all inside a Hangout. Just start a Hangout, have everyone load the YouTube app at the top of the screen, and start adding videos. It’s like your own VIP table at the world’s coolest YouTube party.

Everyone can add videos in the Hangout through a search tool in the app, or remove the videos you don’t like. All your friends in the Hangout can drag and drop videos to sort the order in the playlist, or skip forward or backward to play the next one.
