Works well overall - but the video and screensharing quality is not as good as Skype.

We have been so happy with Google Hangouts. It is very easy to launch and when you're using Google Calendar, the link to the meeting automatically populates the meeting invite. Quality of the reception is great and you also have the ability to share screens. This makes communication - internal and external - much more personal.

it works great for all users who have a google account but lacks in supporting organizations and users outside the office such as external stakeholders

Too many bugs, bad audio, plugin issues and browser compatibility problems. When everyone uses the latest version of Chrome without Flash etc. disabled, it works fine. But with many configurations it's disappointing, which makes it unreliable for some critical uses like sales presentations.

Google Hangouts is one of the easiest services to use for web conferencing. It's easy to get connected because you basically just need a laptop and Internet connection. We're already implementing Google Docs and Google Drive since we switched to Exchange 365 so it made sense to continue exploring other Google software that was compaitble with our environment. Users like the software because they can connect via cell phone or whatever device they choose. They also like that they have the ability to sync their chats with whatever device they are using. Many users in our Education Dept. work off campus so they use mobile devices (laptops, cell phones) when in the field and Hangouts made it possible for them to use the same software regardless of where they are located.

Google is hard to get a hold of but once you do, they are wonderful.

I think that this is excellent video conferencing software. Really high quality and easy to use.
