What is Hangout?

Hangout is a free video-enhanced social media platform that allows you to organize a group video chat with your followers, similar to a FaceTime chat feature. Hangouts can be used with web browsers or mobile devices and accessible through the Gmail email application. On top of being able to chat in a group, Hangouts also include features like games, photo collages, screen sharing capabilities, and more! Hangouts can be used on various social media channels such as Twitter and Facebook. For an example, if your business has an active social media presence on these channels, you can set up a weekly or monthly Hangout Q&A session to answer potential customers’ questions about your service or product.
