"The most reliable video conferencing software I've experienced"

What do you like best?

I like that I am able to see people in real time. The ability for the users to present screens is a must on our team. I like that the moderator has the power to silence people if those people are creating excessive noise. I like that you can now include more than 10 users (the free version would prevent additional people from logging in to a meeting).

What do you dislike?

I don't like that when I share my full screen (I'm on a macbook pro), every 4 seconds my video freezes. Very tough to walk people through designs, when your pointer intermittently stops. There is a way around it, by simply selecting a specific window to share vs the full screen. However, I'd just assume things ran smoothly.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you can handle having limited participants, I'd say that the free version works just fine. But if you are looking to include more than 10, definitely think of upgrading. Business Hangouts isn't perfect, but it is one of the better video conferencing options out there.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have a daily scrum every day with people from the U.S., Belarus and India. It is important that we are able to clearly communicate and ask questions when needed. Our company has outsourced talent to save money, so being able to see the faces and allow people to share their work in real time, simulates a face to face working environment. Something that just didn't exist at this price and quality, 10 years ago.

"HangOut Experiance"

What do you like best?

Hangout is a great tool to be used. Audio and Video clarity is great. I started using this during my Tenure with Visual IQ after Nielsen acquired it. HO is Nielsen standard way of meeting solution. Previusly we were using Blue jeans. However HO found to have better video quality than BJ.

Also we do have provision to mute the participant if needed. This would help to reduce the noise during meetings.

What do you dislike?

While connecting it from the projected screen I found it a bit awkard as I had to enter a 7 digit alphanumeric as meeting password, which was really hard to remember.

Albiet, Hangout is found to be a much useful meeting solution.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is a highly recommended tool and is a perfect meeting solution. I have been using it for more than 6 months now.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are using Hang out for cross geo meetings. This meeting solution seems to have great video clarity when compared to the previously used Blue Jeans.

"The google communication platform to simplify contact with colleagues, customers and partners "

What do you like best?

Everything is integrated: chat, videoconference, calls. Simple and integrated interface in your email account. You can check if your contacts are available with simple status. Invite people to meetings quickly and easily. The configuration of your peripherals is automatic (microphones and camera)

What do you dislike?

The application is very light for its execution but if there is a poor Internet connection, the quality of the video and voice goes down. Desirable to have visual indications to detect low speed connections. Desirable to have connection tests to determine what type of speed you have and establish minimum operating values

Recommendations to others considering the product

Before buying other communication tools, try hangaouts and you will know that all your requirements will be covered at an excessively low cost

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

All the functionalities that are required to maintain contact with your internal and external clients are provided by hangouts. If we consider other google tools such as mail, both integrate an excellent business suite
