Business Hangouts fo G Suite is a simple solution for intra-team communication for businesses. It is straightforward, and easy for team members to implement in their workflows, and the ability create different "rooms" allows you to set up groups specific to coworkers specific to that topic. Business Hangouts can also be used in HIPAA environments such as ours Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The same strength that allows Business Hangouts to be straightforward to use, also becomes its drawback. It's simple because there are not too many deeper uses, especially compared to competitor apps such as Slack and Microsoft Teams. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

When your friends are working somewhere else, you can talk to them easily without any difficulty. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The program has the slight impression of having its functions with more performance when we are using programs integrated with other Google programs. Perhaps as if they were putting together the best benefits of each other, as they are from the same company, it is not fair that it does not have the same efficiency with other products. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

The cost management of a company is highly verified when we have the commitment to cut costs with organization and logistics. And using Hangouts Business, all our friends and employees can be anywhere to make a quick call, or a more urgent meeting, No need to schedule a specific day and create a transportation logistics for each to reach a location physicist for this action.

What do you like best?

It is an tool that has been always part of your life and now it has been turned into a business app for collaboration. ease of reaching out to anyone, sharing meeting links, adding people be it internal or external, no need to wait for anyone to start the meetings are few things to like about the Hangouts. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Limitation of 25 people per meeting - that is the biggest drawback. After that people will have to call in through their mobile phones. This needs to be sorted at the earliest. Also the ability to share files is something that needs to be added in the meetings. It is there in 1-1 connects. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

A The interface is not very attractive. And users do not have as much autonomy as the administrator to develop all the features of the product, making even a fragility in the privacy of simple users. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It's good for calls and video calls. However, the interface is not very clean. Sometimes it is difficult to access. It does not include many features, a very simplified mode. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

The ease with which meetings can be held for small group or individual discourses can greatly help corporate efficiency. Bringing more operationality in daily activities. Distant areas, or even working from home is no problem in using such a program, where connectivity does not have to be very good. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

What I like best is how Google Hangouts for business has allowed me to connect to people across many different departments and it facilitates our conversation. In my role I work everyday with clients as well as a sales team and as well as the technical team. And oftentimes the solution to a client's problem is going to involve getting answers from these different teams and with Google Hangouts I'm easily able to message people from across different teams to get an understanding of what the issue is there and and even create a Hangouts group between all the involved parties so we can put our brains together and resolve the client issue.

It's amazing how I can just do all this right from the comfort of my desk without having to stand up and walk to those departments and keep in mind not only that a lot of our departments are located in completely different cities or states so this is definitely help us to become more close knitted as well. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

What I dislike is how people are able to see when you've seen their message. There should be an option to opt out for instance I know that Google has its read receipt so I was thinking Hangout to do something similar where we can indicate if we want to show if we read the message or not. Also the second and last thing I dislike and I might just be nitpicking but sometimes it's so easy to hit that video button by mistake so I think that should be placed a little bit farther away so that we don't accidentally bring our face to the screen and send that video over to someone when we only want to chat them Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

One of the biggest business problems is being so large of a company all our offices are across different states and even countries and so often times without this kind of communication we are in our own kind of bubble. With Google Hangouts we are able to greet people from different offices or even set up network sessions so that we can become more close knit. It's nice to be able to meet people across the world and are large company and not only that is a for mentioned in my first paragraph having Google Hangouts it's definitely allowed us to coordinate interdepartmental communication. My job involves having to talk to sales as well as technical teams so Google Hangouts has really helped me to save a lot of time by allowing me to quickly chat them on the spot or even create a hangout group so we can put our brains together and figure it out. Also internally as well we are able to create conference calls via Google Hangouts where we can see each other's faces so that kind of puts a more personal touch the meeting and we can invite a lot of people to the meeting as well so we can all listen in and even though we are separated by states or countries feel as if we are in the same room. This again fosters the culture of closeness Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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). Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What 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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
