G Suite Hangouts Meet & chat..!

Google has quietly launched a new video conferencing application called Meet by Google Hangouts, which is designed for HD video meetings. The web and mobile application appears to be the latest addition to Google’s lineup of business products known as G Suite.

It also introduced a new intelligent bot, @meet, to automate the scheduling of chat-based meetings.

This is announced during the Google Cloud Next '17 event in San Francisco.Hangouts Meet was designed to make it easy for groups of people to quickly launch and join video meetings from wherever they're working. And the new Hangouts Chat app is aimed at enabling easy mobile messaging for enterprise team members on the go.

Start your meetings with a quick click: Hangouts Meet

Hangouts Meet is a new video meeting experience with one goal: make joining meetings effortless so that people can be as productive as they are when they’re face-to-face. Google has consistently heard from customers about ways they can improve Hangouts, like making it easier to work with external clients or reducing the ‘time to start’ a meeting to zero. That's why Google has built Hangouts Meet to have a light, fast interface and smart participant management.

Running 30-person video conferences smoothly is easy with Meet. Simply start your meetings with a shared link — no accounts, plugins, downloads or hassles. Meet provides a place for everyone to join from Calendar, an email invite or an ad-hoc share. If you’re dialing in from a conference room, your laptop or using the dedicated mobile app, just a few clicks and you’re in.

Bring your teams together on projects: introducing Hangouts Chat

Hangouts Chat is an intelligent communication app for teams that takes direct messaging in Hangouts and evolves it to reflect the way modern teams talk business.

Working on a project means bringing cross-functional teams together, discussing tasks that need to get done and sharing your work. Chat is built with exactly this in mind.

Dedicated, virtual rooms create a lasting home for each project, with threaded conversations so your team’s progress is easy to follow. Chat’s deep integration with G Suite means shared content from Drive and Docs, or photos and videos can be viewed directly in conversations. And powerful, filterable search in Chat makes it easy to find all your content dating back to the start of the project.


Chat is built not only to reflect the way teams work, but to provide a platform for the enterprise tools they work with. The Hangouts Chat platform supports a wide range of capabilities — from bots to simple scripting using Google App Script and integrates with third-party applications so teams can do more right from within the conversation.Hangouts Meet is generally available today with Early adopter and will gradually roll out to all G Suite customers over the next few weeks. G Suite customers can apply to try Hangouts Chat through the Early Adopter Program.
