So what is all this then?

Gphangouts was created back in 2011 by Carl and has been dead for years now.

Some sites that aren't dead though:

Where to find Golang jobs

If you are a developer, we recommend that you visit Golangprojects to find Golang jobs

The story about gphangouts

The reason why I created this was that Google+ had been launched, and the thing I found most interesting about Google+ was the "Hangout" feature.

Most people seemed to overlook it though, and those that tried to use it found no one to "hangout" with.

So some weeks after Google+ had been launched, I launched as a way to find other people to hangout with.

Tech media was all over anything Google+, since it was the new thing, so it meant that anything related also got press, hence gphangouts appeared in Techcrunch, Mashable and loads of other media.

It got loads of traffic, but despite that never crashed, memcache ftw.

Initially it was little integration with Google+, but over time I added a Chrome plugin, Calendar integration and so on.

Below is some info I pulled from the old site to give an idea how it worked.

Manage hangouts via Google Calendar

How about this...
when you add/edit/delete an event at Google Calendar, those modifications would automatically appear on
Wouldn't that be really convenient?

We have now implemented that.


1) Open Google Calendar and create an Event
2) Enter your Google+ profile url as "Where"
3) Add as guest/participant
4) Enter a description/topic
5) Save
6) Click "Send" when it asks you if it shall send out the invite to the guests

Any modifications you make to the event, will automatically show up at
E.g. if you delete the event, it will also be removed from this website, just be sure to always confirm with "Send" when it asks if the guests shall be updated.

Here is a screendump what it should look like in Google Calendar when you schedule the event,
the important parts are highlighted in yellow.

We would appreciate any feedback how it works out for you.

Here is also a brief video that describes the process, made by Talknology


How about this...
when you start a hangout at Google+, an entry would automatically appear on
Wouldn't that be really convenient?

We have created a bookmarklet that will do this!


Add the bookmarklet (see below) to your bookmarks toolbar.

When you are on Google+ and want to start a Hangout, instead of clicking the Google Hangout button click on our bookmarklet.

You can enter a topic and when you submit the form, an entry is created at and the Hangout window is launched.


Simply drag the "GPHANGOUTS" link on to your bookmarks toolbar:


It has been tested in Firefox, Chrome and Safari.
Make sure you enable popup windows, otherwise the Hangout window will not be launched automatically.
