Image from store Toggle Fullscreen in Hangout
Description from store This extension enables Maximizing the Video/Screencast part of a Hangout and have it fullscreen if you toggle browser with presentation-mode or f11. Redesign from Google ! Google has made some big changes to Hangout, maybe it does not work properly, but it seems still good enough. Feature is similar to "Better On Air Hangouts" but this one is for Hangout and does not need Hangout-on-Air. (But also works with H-O-A if you check the box to enable H-O-A) v1.3 Version Toogle with double-click: This Version works now with doubleclick on the big video-player and makes it fullscreen (maximized) , doubleclick again to make it back to normal size. there is no browser-action-button anymore, as it only watches google-hangout urls and adds only this doubleclick behavior. another fix is the size, the screenratio is now respected and black border added if its to high or to wide. no keyboard-shorcuts and no browser-buttons (next to addressbar) as its not needed, doubleclick is more intuitive and works always in normal and f11 -mode. v1.4 Migrate to Manifest v3

  • (2013-12-12) Jason Adams: I was really hoping this would full-screen screensharing as well.. and it doesn't. If it did that, it'd definitely be a 5 star extension. Please add!
  • (2013-11-16) Erikson Magno: very good
  • (2013-10-29) Brian Calderon: Hangouts is fullscreen now. =]

  • (2013-09-10) Victoria Webbe: Found this through a message board of people kevetching about not having a full screen option--this is fantastic. I greatly appreciate your proactive approach.
  • (2013-09-03) Anjuman R.: the person in the screenshot looks like bigfoot
  • (2013-08-29) Weston Sacco: After a couple seconds of being full screen, without touching it, it switches to a smaller screen in the left corner surrounded by all white for the rest of the screen.
  • (2013-08-16) Chris Ha: Please, make this responsive too! That would make this killer, right now, when resizing it all just fumbles up :( $(window).height = height that shizzle!
  • (2013-08-12) Jon Stover: This worked awesome for me, but my girlfriend got only a white screen
  • (2013-08-03) John Doe (underlyingstorm): Quite good. But sometimes, the video gets resized and the full screen mode gets messed up. This can happen randomly or if you are calling someone one a mobile device and they change screen (and camera) orientation. The code below fixes that (albeit inelegantly): var oldw = $('object').first().parent().width(); var oldh = $('object').first().parent().height(); setInterval(function(e) { p = $('object').first().parent(); if (p.width() != oldw || p.height() != oldh) { resized = 1; resize_viewer(e); oldw = p.width(); oldh = p.height(); } }, 100 );

  • (2013-06-18) Jack Weekes: Works well, thanks!
  • (2013-05-09) Alexander NAZARIAN: Thanks a lot! works exactly I need.

  • (2014-06-24, v:1.3) Andrey: Plugin doesn't work anymore
    Hi, man! Your plugin been helping me a lot in my screenshares viewing! Thank you for that, but recently it just stopped working for me. As soon as I try to maximize by double clicking it goes to default view after a second of full screen. Maybe google added some timer that is watching the size of the screenshare. And I can't understand why do you claim that it isn't needed anymore.(I'm using regular hangouts on PC in Chrome, not on AIR) I still need it badly! Please, help!
