How to get the URL (link) for a Google Hangout in the new app

The new background app for Google Chrome hangouts doesn't show the URL to the specific hangout making it hard to share the link to people who can't be bothered to check their invites or are having trouble receiving calls. This is especially annoying if you want to post a public hangout to a coatroom or an instant message.

As you can see here:




How to get the url:

Right click on the page, select "view source"


This will open another window with the source code of the hangout window, at the top of the page you will find the url you're looking for. Enjoy :)
