Google is no stranger to inviting big names in politics and the entertainment world to take part in live hangouts with supporters. President Obama has already joined in Google+ Hangouts with a live-streamed interview going down last year, but today Google announced that Obama would once again take to Google+ this week. Following this week’s State of the Union address to Congress, President Obama will answer questions via a live Google+ Hangout on Thursday at 4:50 p.m. EST.

Much like the Fireside Hangouts held by Vice President Biden and Domestic Policy Director Cecilia Munoz over the past few weeks, the President’s Fireside Hangout will include a group of people who regularly discuss important issues of the day online. During the conversation, the selected participants will ask the President their own questions—but we’d also like to hear from you before the Hangout. To let the President know what’s on your mind, head to the White House YouTube channel and submit a video or text question.

Google noted that you will be able to watch the President’s State of the Union address on YouTube tomorrow at 9 p.m. EST.
