Google+ Hangouts to raise money for Comic Relief

| 7th Aug 13

Two Google+ Hangouts are to be hosted by Comic Relief this month which will see comedians try to make an online audience laugh for charity.

According to, this is the first time a charity has used the Google+ Hangouts service, which allows users to participate in a live online video conversation.

Comic Relief’s Hangout Comedy Club will be hosted by Google+ and YouTube. A Laughometer has been created by Google to assist with the fundraising initiative, which uses face recognition software to measure the audience’s reaction.
