We would like to use Google Hangout for corporate multi user communication, mainly for screensharing. Default setting does not support fullscreen mode. Only option is to resize the browser window to fullscreen (F11). Unfortunatelly screenshare size is still not big enough.

Is there any way chance to use hangout in fullscreen?

Skype is not an option because free version does not support multi user webcam/screenshare conference.

This is not supported at the moment.

However, I found this Google+ post from a Google employee that involves a little hacking to get it done for On Air Hangouts. Haven't tried this myself though.

Even if you could do this, the quality may not be what you expect. The screenshare is done by sending the screen image into a video stream, rather than trying to send a screen image itself. The video streaming is better tuned to handle actual video from a camera, and is of a resolution (640x360) that is probably far smaller than most screens you'd like to share.
