    • My Google Play experience on last week’s road trip (KZ)

I was wondering if you will be talking tonight about the hangouts issue on GAfE managed domains?  It seems as though many GAfE users are locked out of hangouts (at least with all the apps and tools available - 1:1 video chats/talk is still OK) and are unable to have a group chat, share documents, screenshare, etc.  Apparently the Google Vault attached to our domain is part of the issue, but being a public school district this is necessary.  It has been very frustrating.

Also, I'm having a tough time finding out where I can watch the show live tonight?  Is the show @ 7:30 PST?

Hi guys, I was wondering if on Google Educast  you could look at the best way to set up and organise accounts in GAFE. As to allow easy removal of graduated students and custom settings for particular groups; e.g. email only within the domain for younger groups. Cheers Darren
