We use Google Hangouts when needed, but I’m definitely more impressed with Zoom these days so we’re trying to make the switch.

We have one or two remote employees where we tend to do a lot of Google Hangouts. It’s just the easiest way of getting in touch with them.

Google Hangouts - Best Video Calls, Webinars & Screen Sharing Tools for Startups

Google Hangouts is an internal communication tool that allows for group chat, photo sharing, video chat for up to 10 people and automatic archiving. Like most other Google products, it both integrates seamlessly with other Google apps and is free to use. Hangouts runs on Android and iOS, allowing you to take your work on the go. A number of Stacklist users report having experienced some technical glitches with Hangouts--like buggy video--but the draw of the Google platform and its price point are enough to maintain a large user base.

How much does Google Hangouts cost?

Google Hangouts is free to use with any Google account. However, international calls cost points that must be purchased with Google Wallet.
