Video Lesson: How to Use the Draw Tool to Brand Your Hangouts

Hey There Business Bloomers!  If you use or watch Google’s Hangouts or Hangouts on Air, you already know how important it is to add a name stripe across the bottom of your screen. You can use the built-in Hangouts Toolbox to create your Lower Third stripe, or if you have an image editing app such as Adobe Photoshop you can create a custom stripe and fit in more info than the built in app allows.  


Q: But I don’t have Photoshop, am I just S.O.L.?
A: No – now there is a built in tool to help you, yay!

For people who don’t have Photoshop or another fancy image editing app, there is now a tool built right into Hangouts that enables you to add more info to your screen, such as a phone number, tagline, or testimonial that will strengthen and reinforce your brand. It’s cleverly disguised as a “fun” app, but provides a very practical tool for business as well.
