Google Video Chat Got Killed by Hangouts

People will experience change in the  field of audio-video communication with the  replacement of  Google video chat (functioning since 2008) with Google+ Hangouts this Monday . It’s time to bid adieu to Gmail video chat and welcome Hangout.

Hangout is nothing but the technological upgradation in the traditional video calling technology. Until now, Gmail video chat was based on peer-to-peer  technology  where people could have a one on one private communication .

Check out this video to see how Hangouts will let us hang with your friends.


According to Google blogpost by Fred Brewin, Product Manager, “All Gmail users will benefit from this upgrade, but if you and the person you’re chatting with also use Google+, you’ll get even more from the Hangouts experience. You’ll be able to video chat with up to nine people at once, watch YouTube videos together, collaborate on Google documents and share your screen. Plus, Hangouts has a bunch of fun effects that you can try out…because any conversation is better when you’re wearing a virtual mustache or pirate hat.”

Using Hangouts on Gmail will improve the the quality of video communication that will be experienced by the users .

Are you ready to hike up the communication experience !!!
