What is Hangouts?
It is one of the multi-platform applications, which is designed to provide communication services, be it instant messaging or video calls. This application was created by Google.
This application allows conversations with different users, either through messages, or using video calls and audio calls, from personal computers, tablets, smartphones, iPads, and different devices, free of charge. It can be used in Windows, Android and iOS operating systems. It works very similar to the Skype program, but unlike that it has a greater capacity for the number of users who may be communicating on video.You can make audio and video calls, with one or more people at the same time, also make video conferences with up to 15 people at the same time, as long as we have a camera and microphone. Also, you can send text messages and chat with other people. Also, it allows the broadcast of videos through the network to any part of the world, through websites, social networks, etc.
It is a useful tool for the dissemination of news, sporting events, shows or political events, as well as for making business presentations, through videos. Use it for educational purposes by creating virtual classrooms.
