Google+ hangouts: Odd settings


1xz34s4n thumb Google+ hangouts: Odd settingsPeople are always using functions and website and rarely ever really dig in to the settings for those websites; that goes for other sites like Facebook and Google, but today I was starting my Google+ hangout and saw the options for the camera.

The layout of Google+ hangouts has changed a bit, so it makes good sense to check on them periodically. What I found in the settings was odd…

To me it seemed retro; it was a connection speed selection…

From the Google+ hangouts main sreen, typically on the right hand side. You’ll see the option to Start A Hangout…

Option for the settings is right there when you begin it…tqyzieyp thumb Google+ hangouts: Odd settings

The selection waws for wither FAST CONNECTION or SLOW CONNECTION. I would have figured that by this time the way the Internet is the web applications of today would be detecting that option for you; especially from the old Internet users.

I wouldn’t really expect that option to stay there very long; I woulld expect to see a speed detection and optimization to be built right in to Google+ hangouts.

And if you are ever wondering, yes you need a plug-in to use Google+ hangouts with the browser. I enjoy the Google+ hangouts, they’re fun and the quality is good.

So, the point of the story is— don’t forget to check your settings.
