I can text and video calls my co-workers in Hangouts. This app also allows for multi-video calls, so you can have more than one person on a video-call. Hangouts are easy to launch from Gmail or it can be added it to your calendar meetings. It's integrated into Google Voice, so it can be used as a phone system, too. Some issues are that It's limited to 15 participants at one time and it doesn't record. It's good for smaller meetings that do not require recording, but a different webinar service would be required if the meeting is large and requires recording. Another plus, is that multiple people can screen-share, although, that is a paid feature already available in other products. The quality of video depends on the quality of your Internet connection and there isn't an option for remote keyboard & mouse sharing.

Hangouts UI can be a bit clunky, but its integration into Chrome browser and its integration into Gmail make it easy for new users in our company to adopt. I would suggest the Hangout UI feature messaging and file sharing more, as we find that during conference calls, we usually share links, code, and files. A code friendly editor that support markdown might be a niche ask, but it would be very useful for developers.

So easy to use. Always right there alongside Chrome. Provides notifications and allows me to stay in constant communication with my team.

The overall experience for the google hangouts has been a good one.

Google offers robust feature set that meets most of our needs. However, we are still considering other vendors for our communications because Google doesn't make call/session recording and sharing as easy as it should be and since the system suffers from consistent call drops and freezes, particularly on global calls.

works well, doesn't cost anything to use and can be easily integrated in remote locations including home offices.

The transition into using Google hangouts was extremely seemless.

Our experience has been great. We were able to consolidate multiple software services into one provider and have not looked elsewhere since implementation.
