Google Partners With Asian Pop Stars
Google is touting Google+ Hangout in Asia by partnering with Chinese, Korean and Japanese pop stars starting next month. The artists will answer audience questions via YouTube promotional videos or fans can post queries using Google+ hashtags. Google is also rolling out an A-Pop channel that will act as a hub for live-streaming concerts from Asian artists. It will also feature the latest videos from Asian pop artists and a playlist of the week’s Top 20. There are also individual tabs for K-Pop, C-Pop or J-Pop.
