Google+ has released a new feature that allows users to post video recordings as updates. You can record and share videos of yourself using your webcam.  In the video sharing menu, you can find a ‘Record video’ option that turns on the webcam.

To get started, click the video icon in the share box and choose Record Video. Once you’ve authorized Flash to access your camera, you can start recording. And once you’re done, the video appears as an attachment to your post — ready to share with your circles.
