It just keeps on enabling anyone to just use Google+ the way they want to.
You are here for the fun of it? Just start some doodles with your friends.
Want to play with friends while seeing them? Start a poker or trivia game.
Want to work? Start a mindmapping session.
Want to do anything? Wait until there is an app for it or develop it on your own.
That's in my opinion one of the biggest difference between a "social" network such as facebook and an "interest" network such as google+.
Anyone gets to use the same tools, but in very different ways depending on the group of people they use them with. One day you might take part in a work hangout with your colleagues, then the next play with friends, and finally have a quick doodle session with your nephews on a rainy sunday!

Do more with more apps in Google+ Hangouts
Hangouts are great for spending time together, as well as doing things together. That's why we've been adding apps to Hangouts since launch — from YouTube to screensharing to Google Docs. Today we're introducing a starter set of featured apps, and enabling developers to share any hangout app with the entire Google+ community!
Now when you start a hangout, you'll notice a new "Apps" button at the top of your screen. Once inside you'll see both Featured and Recent hangout apps, including:
1) +Aces Hangout, for playing poker with friends, face-to-face-to-face
2) Clubhouse Challenge by +Bravo, for testing your pop culture IQ against other teams
3) +Cacoo, for wire-framing, mind-mapping and diagramming with others
4) Google Effects, for trying on headwear, eyewear or facial hair
5) +Scoot & Doodle, for drawing and coloring with the people you care about
6) +SlideShare, for co-viewing presentations, docs and videos
Beyond these featured items, we're making it easy for any developer to distribute hangout apps across Google+. Just post a link to your app, and users can click to add it to their hangout. It then appears in “Recent” for all their future hangouts. Our Google+ Developers blog has more details http://goo.gl/CUAJ0
We're rolling out these changes gradually, so check back soon if you don't see them yet. In the meantime, you're welcome to hang out for a while, and let us know what you think in the comments!
