Using StreamText with Google Hangouts

You have two options the first is to use our Google Hangout application. Click here to start a hangout with the application installed. Each viewer will just need to enter the event name for the StreamText event and the realtime will stream into the right hand margin of the hangout.


The second option is to use the Google Hangout Captions App that is provided by Google. We helped develop this with Google. This option does not require you to pre schedule an event in StreamText. The App actually will walk you though the scheduling process. Please see the instructions below.
