Hangouts 2014.910.433.1

A Google Chrome web browser extension that provides Google+ users with instant messaging, voice chat and video call features plus many more
Hangouts is a Chrome extension that offers you an accessible and fun way of chatting with friends and family.

You can add it to your browser directly from the Chrome web store or manually install it by dropping the extension file into its corresponding section. Once added, it creates the typical icon in the Chrome interface which you can use to access it.

Clicking the Hangouts icon from the browser opens up the chat service in a window that is completely independent from Chrome. This way, when you’re done browsing but you still want to chat, closing the browser doesn’t affect Hangouts.

Its interface is simple and allows for quick access to all the available features. The main window contains a list of all your contacts and you can open them with a simple click. You can have conversations with one or more people at a time and even create video conferences with up to 10 people. During chat you can always create new groups, archive the conversation and activate the history. You can even block users.

Within the Hangouts chat you can easily share and collect images and use a very large number of emoji to express your state of mind.

Hangouts also makes it easy to handle multiple chat windows. Each new one you create snaps to the previous one and so you get a neatly organized sequence of tabs. Minimizing them they remain hidden under the taskbar and reveal themselves when you move the mouse cursor over them. It’s a really nice feature to have, especially of you have a large number of windows that are opened at the same time.

In closing, Hangouts is a very practical extension that can easily help you stay in touch with friends while also providing you with sharing and video conferencing features that cone in handy all the time.
