Google Hangouts has become a go-to option for video calls over the years, and as such, its feature list has only gotten better to match demand. Now Google is updating Hangouts with yet another feature that will make it easier than ever before to simply hop into a video call or conference.
The announcement was made via the official Google For Work blog, and states that joining up with a video call — whether it’s a one-to-one or conference session — will now be as simple as following a link and filling in a name. There won’t be any need to fill out a form, and the people joining in the call don’t even need a Google account to access it.
The process is straightforward enough: Simply invite those you want into the call via Google Calendar, which includes a link to the call within it. They’ll click that link, fill in their name, and then will be included in the call. The owner of the session will be able to accept or deny incoming participants as well.
Google making it even easier for groups or individuals to use Google Hangouts should go over well enough. How often do you use Google Hangouts’ video features?
