From September 12, 2016, Google Hangouts on Air will be discontinued and in the favour, they are introducing YouTube Live. As of now, the users will broadcast through their Google+ Hangouts now this will be available only through the YouTube Live.
Earlier Hangouts were made available only to the limited users when the Google+ was first launched in 2011; later it is extended to all users within one year. This live-streaming format has been used to power several prominent Web Series, including Vaginal Fantasy, in which hosts Felicia Day, Veronica Belmont, Kiala Kazabee, and Bonnie Burton read erotic literature.
Instead of completely stopping the Hangouts on Air services, Google is moving it to the YouTube Live. Hangouts on Air are sticking around, and the intention of moving this is clear.
As of now Google has made several steps to separate the Google+ from its other properties and this decision falls completely in this category.
The main substantial things happened in the year 2015 for separating the Google+ and YouTube, when Google selected their users would no longer need the Google+ accounts to leave the YouTube comments.
Earlier in the year 2013, this decision reversed a controversial change that was derided by the YouTube community shortly after it was implementation.
