YouTube news ruled the Morning Media Menu (MP3 link) today, talking about how you can throw a video party with your friends in Google+ Hangouts.
Here’s more from YouTube about the new tool: “Create, control, save and even share playlists of videos with your friends—all inside a Hangout. Just start a Hangout, have everyone load the YouTube app at the top of the screen, and start adding videos. It’s like your own VIP table at the world’s coolest YouTube party. Everyone can add videos in the Hangout through a search tool in the app, or remove the videos you don’t like. All your friends in the Hangout can drag and drop videos to sort the order in the playlist, or skip forward or backward to play the next one.”
