Since its launch back in March this year, the Google Hangout Chat app has only been available to companies that enrolled in Google’s Early Adopter Program.
Now, the Google Hangout Chat app is open to all users subscribed for G Suite, Google’s software for businesses that includes Gmail, Google Docs, and so on. As the Hangouts Chat app is finally integrated to G-Suite, users can now upload items from Drive, work together on Docs, Sheets, or Slides, and hold group video chats in Hangouts Meet.
Users with admin rights can even archive, export, and save Chat data using the integrated Vault application. The latest version of Hangouts Chat will be equipped with Google’s AI to make workflows more efficient.
Google hints that Google Hangout Chat app will soon be upgraded with Machine learning-powered features over the “coming months.” As soon it happens, the app will automatically suggest meeting times based on attendees’ location and availability. Another noteworthy feature in the app would be “Quick Access in Docs,” which will suggest relevant files in Drive to users based on their activity.
Nonetheless, Hangouts Chat is fully compatible with the usual Hangouts app as users can access their existing contacts to collaborate better. The app apparently supports 28 languages, and is available via a web browser client as well as standalone apps on iOS and Android.
