Google Hangouts offer businesses a powerful and inexpensive way to go “high tech” and integrate video conferencing into their business routines. Uses include opportunity for dispersed offices to have team meetings together online, or for the sales department to present to a client. Another use is for personal customer service, and the On Air Hangouts can be a way to do live webinar presentations to talk about new products, show by demonstration how to setup and use products, and to give a insider view of your company culture.
So before you dismiss video conferencing and live streaming presentations as too expense or futuristic, know that Google has brought this service to the general public and there are business uses that can help save time and travel costs by simply using the Google+ Hangout private or public video conferencing and broadcasting tools!
