The Desktop version of Google Plus now sports a new updated info panel and links to Mobile Hangout Apps.
Choose Hangouts from the left side dropdown menu and you'll see the new updated look for the Hangouts page.
You can still Start a Hangout on Air (HOA) right from the first screen via the Blue Button, but you may need to slide down a bit to get to it. The link to get to the Hangouts page directly is https://plus.google.com/u/0/hangouts
Hangouts are the Magical Communication Tool offered by Google+ for video meetings, they can be private or public. If public, then they are commonly broadcast live as HOA and automagically recorded as videos on YouTube when you're done.
The other version of Hangouts start up from that little green quote thing in the upper right of the page, but only for Profile accounts, not available for Page accounts. Those are little text/chat meeting rooms called Hangout Message Boxes (HMB). They can easily turn into a private Hangout Video Call with the click of a button among those invited into that HMB.
