Google Hangouts – A Way to Communication at a Glance
Google Hangouts is a cross-platform instant messaging app designed by Google. In late 2021, Google launched Hangouts as a free application targeted at business communication. Since its launch, Google Hangouts has been integrated with various Google services including Google+, Gmail, Google+, and Google Maps.
Google Hangouts has the functionality to send and receive voice calls, video and text conversations, and file sharing between devices. With the installation of Google Hangouts onto a computer, it becomes possible to share presentations, screen captured pictures, images and documents with anyone in the world. All these functions are enabled by setting up Google Hangouts as an instant chat window. To start a hangout session, the user needs to create a group from the main page of Hangouts. Also, a temporary internet link is provided on the desktop to enable users to join the hangout chat without being present in the room
By clicking on the “Join” button, people can join the hangout chat window in the form of a video chat or text chat session immediately after registration. This allows for two way video chat or text chat to take place. Google Hangouts provides a group function for creating and joining rooms for video chats and text chats. Through this feature, a large group can be communicated to a smaller group at any given time.
