Let’s all watch live cat videos together

If you’ve been wondering what, exactly, to do with your Google+ account, here’s an idea.
According to Mashable, Google is adding live YouTube streaming to Google+ hangouts (those are the sites live video chat sessions.) This means you and your buddies can watch a football game, in-real time, together.

Or, maybe a live stream of your cat, doing some really cute tricks.

I suppose this will also cut down on the need for typing “LOL”–because you’ll actually see your friends laughing. That seems to me a big bonus.
