If you use Google+ Hangouts out at your news outlet, you might like to know that Jeremy Ng from Google has this week announced Google Capture, a tool for taking photos during a Hangout.
The app lets Hangout users take photos of a Hangout in progress, saving all of those photos to a shared folder available to all Hangout invitees. Photos can be viewed while you’re in the Hangout, while you’re browsing through your photo albums, and by visiting the original Hangout post on Google+.

The Hangouts Capture app will be available worldwide soon within the traditional Hangouts app, alongside YouTube and Effects.
