I was lucky to get access to the app today, even though it's still in private Beta. Wow! This is not a small app written by a solo developer from home. This is a professional business app for high-end webcasting, written by a venture backed startup. Better than GotoMeeting or Webex. It awesomely completes Hangouts. Will be using it for our next webinar!

No end-to-end encryption options. If encryption were offered, it would be 5 stars.

Within ten minutes of trying BHO, I was in love with it. It did everything that my GoToMeeting account did, but did it easier and quicker. I use it daily in my Google+ Communities as well as in one on one training sessions. The Business-Hangout Support Team is the best I have ever encountered and are always to try and provide user requested features if possible. All in all an excellent product with outstanding support.

Ok, so you stole the name and icon from Google, and think a disclaimer in the description suffices? It's fairly evident what the intentions here are.

Could you imagine your doctor dropping you because you say that the medication he prescribed made you sick? This is the best way I can describe what happened here. I had reviewed them a 5 star just 2 days ago. I know new programs are buggy, but programmers typically want to make it right, so I hang in there with them. BHO is a great concept, but still full of bugs; won't work if you have an organization that uses multiple email accounts (will get a loop back error on Chrome and not log into Gmail unless you clear your entire history). Customer service is only user based so I was never able to get my "technical" issues resolved - despite putting in over 30 hours to learn their software. If the owner volunteers to help, refuse it (trust me!) He means well and is a very nice guy, just not meant to provide customer service or technical support. Sorry for my poor review, but hopefully this will help BHO realize that they shouldn't be nice and kind when everything is okay, then turn on a paying customer (me) because I'm having technical issues that they don't want to fix. Sorry for the poor review, but my review would have stayed a 5 star (like it was just 2 days ago) if they even attempted to fix my technical issues, instead of minimizing them, then pushing me off to their user support group (who are awesome, but not their technical team), then dropping us like a bad habit.

Until a few months ago, we were only producing audio podcasts for an audience of several thousands of members. We thought we could get closer to our members thanks to the power of the live video. After a thorough search on the market and comparison and evaluation of different products, we chose Business Hangouts which was based on Google's powerful and highly scalable technology, while offering those professional characteristics that we needed: Privacy, (we don't want our meetings to be publicly accessible), and Branding (we have invested in our brand recognition and wanted to capitalize on it with our Live video streams). We started with the BUSINESS plan, and in our very first webinar, we already got 300 registrants! We called on the Business Hangouts team and asked them to run our first events, as we didn't want to miss it, It was a huge success. We quickly upgraded to the new Webcast plan, and now we run our weekly live events successfully with a large number of members each week. They love the experience, we have raised the bar in our industry considerably and feel we have moved out business to a whole new level within a very short period of time! Beside the technology, I should say that one of the key factors of our success has been both BHO's tech support inside the private G+ community, and our decision of using BHO's managed services and custom training. The BHOA support is second to none, I work with a LOT of software, these guys are the best that you will find when it comes to support. They go far beyond what I could have ever expected!

It is very clear in 2015 going forward, that using live video broadcasting is an excellent method to build your corporate brand, acquire new business and retain the clients/customers you currently support. I've spent nearly 15 years using various broadcasting technologies but frankly was frustrated until I stated using the Business Hangouts (BHO) platform. With minimal training, I found I could launch a full screen, HD live broadcast, which included multiple participants on camera, slide sharing and interactive, audience text chat. The quality of audio/video, the reliability of transmission, and the ease of use was superior to other software competitors. Also having a one-click, full guest registration process which created an accessible email database for event email notification and follow-up was an extremely valuable feature. However the icing on the cake :-), was the level of customer service available directly from the BHO management team and the user community. Response to questions no matter how complex, were consistently provided within an hour of the request! Obviously, I highly recommend this application to anyone searching for a way to truly connect with prospects and customers in your market. Try out the free BHO trial account and you definitely won't be disappointed.

Are you thinking of getting a paid account? I am so glad I did it! A few weeks ago I scheduled my first BHO webinar for 5/23. Yesterday I decided I should upgrade to a paid account to take advantage of the additional features that would give my communications a more customized and professional appearance. Darius immediately alerted me to a problem that I'd never have known existed. He and Guillaume were amazing in fixing the error (on a Saturday!) in a way that responded to my concerns. They also very patiently answered my rookie questions. What a great experience! I upgraded my account. These guys are the best!

Very nice! This is Google Hangouts On Air with the recording features built for businesses. Very impressive effort, that will surely get better and better. The fact that you can now invite participants who can log in via their Facebook or Linked In accounts as well as Google Plus makes it extremely flexible. The audio in the recordings are stellar quality. That right there would be enough for me, but this tool is feature rich. Still in Beta when I saw it being run by Ronnie Bincer in a demo today, but it is going to be fantastic, I can tell you.

We are an Educational Institution in Europe with thousands of users in our domain. We had our first premium subscription in Business Hangouts as of late 2013, with some of our individual accounts. It’s a great complement to Hangouts as it enables registration-based virtual classrooms and webinars with many advanced features bringing HOAs well above other tools such as WebEx, GoToMeeting or Adobe Connect. It also removes all the hassle of learning those subtle tech details that you need to master with Hangouts and HOAs and YouTube and other Hangouts apps before you can run your first webinar or classroom. It’s an all in one app. Since this new version in the Apps Marketplace is out for Google Apps and GAfE, we tested it in our domain and love the additional admin tools for managing the users subscriptions.
