On Saturday, Justin Uberti, Tech Lead, Google Real-Time Communications, tweeted: "HD Hangouts are live, brought to you by the VP8 codec! Another awesome launch by the team. All you need is a recent computer (4 or more cores) and a HD camera (I recommend the Logitech C910)."

Chee Chew on Aug 28, 2013 shared the following update:

Hangout Face to Face to Face in HD
Connect with friends and family in high res with HD hangouts! We are rolling HD out to hangouts on air initially, then to all desktop hangout video calls over the next few weeks.
HD hangouts require an HD-capable webcam, more bandwidth and more processing power than standard definition. So if your computer and network are capable, turn the quality up to HD!
