Bring in your friends and family while doing a video chat on Gmail and have unlimited fun. Google Indian has rolled out the Google+ Hangouts to all of Gmail users in India.
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. Customers can still enjoy 1:1 video chat with any Gmail user, but now they can add up to 9 people at once to the video chat. Only condition here is, this users need to upgrade their Google account to Google+.
With Hangouts you can watch YouTube videos with friends, collaborate on Google Docs, or play games by adding apps from the menu on the left. If you have a slow internet connection, just switch over to ultra low bandwidth mode to keep the conversation going. You can also start or take part in a hangout while you’re on the go on your mobile using the Google+ app for Android and iOS.
To use Hangouts, click on the hangout button at the top of the chat list in Gmail. So why wait? start a Hangout with your friends.
