After the release of Google+ last year it has been relatively quiet (we think). But that doesn’t mean Google hasn’t been busy. This week they annouced a new high quality ‘Studio Mode’ for musicians to play live concerts, online! Bands can now stream online concerts to their fans with good sound quality.
Below is what Matthew Leske (Product Manager for Hangouts On Air) has to say about it:
“Since we launched Google+ a little over a year ago, we’ve seen a thriving community of musicians connect with fans in really cool ways. In particular: singer/songwriters likebands like and many others are using Hangouts On Air to perform live for global audiences, and jam with fans face-to-face.
We wanted to make these live hangout concerts sound more like the stage, so today we’re rolling out Studio Mode. As a musician, all you need to do is start your Hangout On Air, click settings, and switch from Voice to Studio Mode.
Studio Mode optimizes your individual audio for music instead of conversation, and no else needs to change a thing! Check out the video withto hear the difference (and for the full effect, listen with your favorite pair of headphones).“
