Google has officially rolled out Google+ Hangouts for all Gmail users in India. The official Google blog stated,” Over the last few months, we’ve been rolling out updates to Google+ Hangouts to make it easy for you to connect with friends and family no matter where you are. Today we’re excited to bring Hangouts to all of our Gmail users in India.”
Google+ Hangouts will allow Gmail users to video chat with up to 9 people at once, after they’ve upgraded to Google+. Apart from this, with Hangouts, users can watch YouTube videos with friends, collaborate on Google Docs, or play games by adding apps from the menu on the left. In case of a slow connection, users can opt for an ultra low bandwidth mode to keep the conversation going.
To activate Hangouts, one has to just click on the hangout button at the top of the chat list in Gmail. Users can also schedule a hangout with Google Calendar, and use the Google+ app for Android and iOS to hang out while on the go.
