The but this integration is that apparently must be taken in order to use Google+ hangouts in Gmail, and the partner must also have this social network. Integration also means you can communicate with your mail contacts only through Gmail, but since Google+ and applications for Android and IOS.
Gmail video chat integrated in 2008 originally. Hangouts “use the power of the Google Network to deliver enhanced reliability and quality,” the company said.
Hangouts also allow users to collaborate on Google docs and screen sharing, as well as “other entertaining” that can be used. The option to use the Meetups will begin appearing today in the mail, but will gradually so you have to have some patience if you do not yet appear.
