A Q&A app can also be enabled before starting a hangout-on-air (the
broadcast version) so users accessing it via the Google+ stream can
submit questions back to the broadcasters.  They appear in a separate
pane inside the hangout and the person hosting can select them to
answer, which links the question/answer during playback.  Other
viewers can also see and "+1" questions.

The main problem is that the delay of the stream (anywhere up to a
minute) and the slight delay (10/20 seconds?) of the Q&A app means
that it isn't immediate, so expect to see questions bubble up at the
end, or shortly after a topic has been discussed.

Here's an example from Foreman, click the "nine squares" icon in the
top right, then Q&A and you can skip to answered questions.
