Joining a meeting should be as easy as walking into a room. That should be the case whether youâ€™re meeting in person, or face-to-face over video. This week weâ€™re rolling out an update to Google Hangouts that makes joining a video call as simple as clicking a link in an invitation. No filling in forms, no need for a Google account, just simple, easy access to meetings. Connect with teammates and get things done, while maintaining the control and security you need in a work environment.
Say youâ€™re a business about to talk through new product plans with your supplier, and you decide itâ€™d be great to also get the thoughts of a key customer. No problem.
Invite your external guests with Google Calendar
They click a link in the event description and fill in their name
In order to help give you control and security over your meetings, youâ€™ll get a prompt to accept / deny their entry whether youâ€™re using web, mobile or Chromebox for meetings.
With Hangouts security features like locking video meetings to only people within an organization and muting and ejecting participants, thereâ€™s always the right level of security to match your organizationâ€™s needs.
The update is rolling out now on Google Play.
