We already use Google as our default search engine, Google Docs as our go-to word processor, and Google Drive to store our files and documents. Why not cave in and use Google Hangouts for our video calls? In addition to video calls, Google Hangouts lets users send text messages, attach photos, or transition to a phone call. It’s simple and to the point, without the clutter of other video chat services. The fact that it’s made by Google lets users pull information and contacts straight from their email or phone without any hassle. Users can also take part in group calls, whether it’s for video or voice chat.
