Today Google introduced a new app for iOS and Android devices called Hangouts. This is more or less an upgrade for Google Talk and an integration of what Google+ offers with Google Hangout. It has some new features. So be sure to take a look at the specs. Is this an app you see using? I have found Google Hangouts useful for group chats and group meetings. I have also had better performance with Hangouts versus any other video chat platform including FaceTime.
Hangouts brings one-on-one and group conversations to life with photos, emoji, and video calls for free. Connect with friends across computers, phones and tablets.
— Group conversations are better than ever. Send photos or emoji, see when people are engaged in the Hangout and message friends anytime, even if they’re not connected right now.
— Video calls make Hangouts more fun. Turn any conversation into a video call with up to 10 friends.
— All your friends can use Hangouts. Hangouts works on computers, phones, and tablets, so you can connect with everyone.
More Hangouts awesomeness:
— View and continue your Hangouts across devices.
— Get notifications just once. After you see an alert, it’ll be removed on other devices.
— Snooze your notifications if you’d prefer to respond later.
— See what you talked about in the past, including shared photos and your video call history.
— Keep a record of any Hangout for just a short period of time by turning history off.
— View collections of photos shared from each of your Hangouts.
— Choose from over 850 emoji to express what’s on your mind.
— Mobile carrier and ISP charges may apply.
