Google+ Hangouts is one of the best, free, group video chat apps we’ve ever seen. Now, the collaborative, multi-person video calling service is coming to all Gmail users.
You would think that with so many video conferences and conference calls happening in offices around the world every day we’d all have this down pat by now. Oh no, we don’t. Conference calls are some of the most annoying and stressful things your job may make you do. Here’s how you can make them a little better, both for yourself and for everyone else on the line.
Meetings.io, the super-easy, no-sign-in-required video meeting site, has added screen sharing and file sharing to their video chat service. Given those were the only two features we thought were notably missing in our first test, it’s worth giving Meetings.io another look for your insta-meeting needs. [Meetings.io]
Windows and OS X: One of the more cumbersome elements of video chatting is that it isn’t always as simple as connecting with another person and talking to them. It can fail to connect and you can often try to reach someone without knowing if they’re available since many people just leave their normal status as “away.” QuicklyChat aims to solve those problems with a simple push-to-talk process.
Want to get a few people in side-by-side video chat but don’t want to set everybody up with Skype, video conference software or a Google+ Hangout? Head to Meetings.io, create a room, and give your people the look. In seconds, you’re all chatting live in a simple side-by-side setup.
