Hello, fellow awesome people. I did a little testing, and I’m back with some results.
– Test 1: Chat thread goes away when everyone leaves the hangout. #ChatResets I joined the hangout and added a welcome message to the chat. Then, I left the hangout, and a few minutes joined again to discover the chat was empty. So, my conclusion is the chat thread resets once everyone leaves the hangout.
– Test 2: Anyone can join with this link. #NoHostRequired Before I joined the hangout, I switched to a different gmail account, and was able to join just fine as the only one on the hangout. My conclusion is that this link is a standing video hangout that anyone (up to 10 anyones) can join at any time, and the person who originally initiated it is not required. Excellent! Just as I hoped.
Ok… that’s all for now. See you on the Visual Playground, Muddy
