In a major move to make more from Google Hangouts, Google has finally divided the app into two categories or segments. They have come up with two new options – one is the Meet and the other is Chat.
The Hangouts Meet is the video conferencing service that would allow users to between employees and other users. You can use Meetings feature to have video call to as many 30 employees. You only need is the dedicated app for the operating system you are using. You can even use it via the web platform.
Today, Google Suite users will start getting the Hangouts Meet.
In order to give competition to Slack, Google has formed Hangouts Chat service. It allows you to have different rooms for different teams in project building or in any other work. The G Suite integration allows easy attachment of documents from Google’s other services. Chat’s deep integration with G Suite means shared content from Drive and Docs, or photos and videos can be viewed directly in conversations.
Hangouts chat is available for early adopters. You can access it by visiting the early adopters sign up page.
