How to Watch YouTube Video With Friends Using Google Plus

Google Plus: Now You Can Ignore Friends While Zoning on a Video

You can now use Google plus to watch a YouTube video live with friends who are remote. Thanks to SFGate and Business Insider for pointing out this new feature.

Now you and up to 9 viewers can watch a YouTube video spontaneously, and see each other via webcam. Hopefully Google Plus will boost that number, and allow for many more to join even if via text only. It’s kinda like Stickam or but there’s no need for anyone to be interesting. You just need to find a video that’s not boring. Good luck.

Here’s how:

  1. Go to Google Plus (you need an account, and here’s my Nalts profile).
  2. Click the “Share” button on any YouTube video (how about Airport Crawling?).
  3. On the right, click link that says “Start a Google Hangout.”
  4. When window launches, use commands to talk (push the green button) or just watch.
  5. I’m not sure how to invite friends, but maybe they find you from your circle jerks.
Use Google Plus' "Hang Out" tool to watch YouTube videos with friends (if you have any)

  1. One time when I was still actively practicing law I found an email from some douche pushing other other team members to get going and the last sentence incuded the phrase ‘circle jerk.’ I was interpreting is ‘circle, jerk’ but couldnt figure out why he was saying that. I went in to my bosses office and read him the email but told him ‘ I cant figure out this sentence.’ My boss said ‘ dont worry about that I know why he’s saying it’ and then I had a sudden epiphany re: what it meant. Now that was an awkward moment.

  2. I’m getting tired of social networking few network back and even that’s rare and when most do they want something it’s like capitalism. Soon as I saved enough I’m moving to Paris hang out in cafes all day long, brood over my writing at a dark corner table and paint on the streets that’s if society hasn’t collapsed by then
