Good news for Google Hangouts: it got a new interface and a dedicated page just for itself. So it is time to officially welcome Houngouts among the internet freelancers.
This impressive change has come as good news for a good number of Hangouts users who have been using the service for some time. But the previous interface did not feel right, it always felt like something was missing and its identity was not completely shaped. But not everything has changed. And for the better.
The new URL is nothing different from the usual Google naming convention: hangouts.google.com and the new homepage looks like a broader Hangouts interface. A few interesting and good-looking features that were added such as the bigger list of contacts on the left and the expanded conversations on the right.
And don’t you worry. If you are still a big fan of Hangouts on Gmail, this option is still available for you whenever you need it. You might also be interested in trying out the new tab version as it seems to suit the thousand-tab warrior quite well. Either way, the new interface will welcome you whether you are an old-school user or a brand new member.
Hangouts is a platform that was specifically designed for communication. While it includes a lot of features that competitors like Skype have, it managed to bring a breath of fresh air on the communication market. Its services include instant messages, SMS, VOIP and video chat.
Google Hangouts is the service that seems to have withstood the test of time out of all the previous messaging services that Google tested throughout the years. The other ones were Google Talk, Google+ Messenger and the previous Hangouts feature, which allowed group conferencing for up to a maximum of 10 people at the same time.
In the end, Google Hangouts was released as a response to the competition from Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp and iMessage. And it doesn’t seem like it wants to stop here. With a new interface, it looks like Google Hangouts is going to stay strong for a good period of time.
