Hangout launched today their room-based, web-embedded and cross-platform 3D online virtual world in closed beta. "On Hangout, teens interact with their friends as they do in the offline world- whether it be watching favorite videos on YouTube, listening to music, sharing Facebook photos, engaging with popular brands and products that they love, playing games or making music, or just chatting "in person". Kids can now create their own personal 3D rooms leveraging real goods and clothes and hang out with their friends in their own spaces." [from Press Release]
