Having to email attendees just as the meeting starts to say, "Hold on, I'm downloading a plugin," isn't fun. If you're using Google for both personal and work email, say you have a Gmail and Google Apps account, then make sure you're hanging out from the correct account.This is important on either end of a video call—sending or receiving an invitation.And when that day comes you're googling incessantly looking for the answer. The following Google Hangout video call guide shows you how to get started, invite participants, record a call, collaborate over a Google Doc and more.Now it's time to find where to access Hangouts video calls.
The tool is free, quick to access and familiar to everyone on the team.
Click on the Hangouts either on top of your Google chat bar to open a new window that offers invitation by either sharing a link, sending an email invitation or adding a telephone number.
Google also recommends that you send a quick email or chat message to attendees 10 minutes before the meeting with the video call URL.
The browser add-on makes Hangouts its own app, meaning now longer do you need to go to Gmail or Google to start a video call.
If you use a Hangouts mobile app, too, it also syncs your history and notifications across devices.
