New Google+ Hangouts App Enables Cross-Platform, Multi-Media Conversations

Google announced the new Google+ Hangouts app at Google I/O today. The new app combines Google’s chat, voice and video services into one product.

The stand-alone version of Hangouts allows users to combine images, video conferencing and text chats (now complete with emoji) in one experience.

Video calls can include up to 10 people. As the new tagline — “Conversations that last, with people that you love” — suggests, Hangouts can now be archived (though you can turn off history if you don’t want to relive your chats and calls).

The app is now available on desktops through Chrome as well as on Android and iOS devices.
