Google launched Studio Mode today for live Hangout concerts on Google+.
The tool fine tunes the video-chat service’s noisy audio to a high-quality level so instruments and beats are more defined and pleasant to the ear.
“We wanted to make these live hangout concerts sound more like the stage, so today we’re rolling out Studio Mode,” announced Googler Matthew Leske in a Google+ post. “Studio Mode optimizes your individual audio for music instead of conversation, and no else needs to change a thing!”
Musicians simply need to start Hangout On Air, click settings, and then switch from Voice to Studio Mode to activate the new tool. It appears only the person running the Hangouts session has the ability to toggle Studio Mode, however.
