What I'm Using: A single URL to start a Google Hangout

I’m really not sure how I missed this, but my goodness is this a time saver. I often need to grab a link to a google hangout. This is the easiest way to start one and send the link out. Just Awesome!

http://hangouts.google.com/start

This will create a standard Google Hangout that you can invite your friends to. It won’t make a new browser window that has the address bar hidden or anything like that. I’ve seen other solutions that pop-up a new window that have the address bar and navigation bars removed, this doesn’t help me when I want to grab the URL and share it with a friend over Facebook or IM. When doing this it will also create an empty hangout if you hit “cancel”; for those of you who want to play around with it or invite by URL instead of invite by google account name.
