Hangout video sharing is one of Google+'s more appealing features -- not that we use it often, but when it comes to things to do in an online social gathering, watching YouTube clips would certainly rank near the top.

Sure, it's a simple tweak that probably took less than an hour to code, but it's a clever addition nonetheless.
