Google updates Gmail to include Hangouts, launch virtual meetings from inbox

Google adds Hangouts to Gmail, allows video meetings right from your inbox

| Internet & Websites News | Posted: Jul 30, 2012 5:32 pm

Google has been doing a lot of updating to numerous services lately and Hangouts is the latest to receive the update. This is just the latest in a series of updates that Hangouts has been getting. Some of the other updates include the ability to add digital mustaches and schedule video chats before a Google+ event.

 

 

Google has now added Hangouts to Gmail so that users can video chat straight from Gmail. Wait, they could do that already? Well, now you can group video chat and host virtual meetings right from Gmail. The new addition should provide a higher quality video chat experience along with several other benefits.

 

For one, using Hangouts will allow users on Android, iOS, or Google+ in a web browser to join in the fun. Furthermore, it will allow users to video chat with up to nine friends, as opposed to the previous option of only one. It may not be one of Google's coolest updates, but it certainly makes sense. Check out the videos above and below if you need more convincing.
