You must have heard about the ‘Hangout’ feature in Google Plus. Now, this feature is available in Gmail as well! Gmail has always been the most popular cloud-based emailing service of Google. Now, a new feature is added to this wonderful emailing service.
The Hangout feature of Google+ lets you to indulge in video chatting with around 9 people at a time. This is a great replacement to the peer-to-peer video chatting which prevailed in Gmail previously! A truly useful and fascinating feature!!!
Fred Brewin, the product manager of Google Plus said, “Unlike the old video chat, which was based on peer-to-peer technology, Hangouts utilize the power of Google’s network to deliver higher reliability and enhanced quality.”
Brewin further added that this feature allows you to chat with those persons with whom you had chatted before. With this Hangout feature, you can now reach to these people when you are in Gmail or Google+ or any iOS devices or Android devices. Google Monday gradually rolled out Gmail Hangout for the users subscribed for hosed email services.
Another superb feature of this new add-on is – this service enables a number of Gmail users to watch YouTube videos altogether, collaborate Google documents and share the screen view amongst the users. So, now if you desire to watch some video with your friend, you are free to do so. Just ask your friend to get online with the Gmail Hangout feature.
The implementation of Hangout to Gmail is nothing but an effort of Google to integrate its Google+ social networking features to other products of Google. According to the CEO and co-founder of Google, the plan of Google is to utilize the features of Google+ for transforming your complete Google experience.
In words of Larry Page, the CEO of Google, “Our ultimate ambition is to transform the overall Google experience, making it beautifully simple, almost automagical, because we understand what you want and can deliver it instantly. This means baking identity and sharing into all of our products so that we build a real relationship with our users. Sharing on the Web will be like sharing in real life across all your stuff.”
Together with this, Google also desired to integrate Google Apps and Google+…
