Livestream from mobile with Google Hangout

As you may or may not know Google Hangout has a cool feature know as Hangouts on Air, it allows you to broadcast your google hangouts to Youtube live and in realtime and save them afterwards. Now this is great but what if you wanted to broadcast a football game or an event far from any wifi. Well ios and Android devices cannot start a Hangout on Air but they can join one.

You need to be two to do this but you can start a google on air using a computer, have the person using a mobile join the conversation. Then simply click on them so they are fullscreen, you are now broadcasting live from a mobile. I am hoping that the feature will soon come to the mobile app but in the meantime this is a great work around.
