Get to know the new Hangouts Meet

OIT will roll out Hangouts Meet, Google’s new tool for video conferencing, to campus G Suite users on Monday, May 21.

While Hangouts Meet replaces the classic Google Hangouts, you’ll still find some familiar as well as new features, including:

  • a streamlined approach to connect up to 25 people on campus or around the globe.
  • Internal chat.
  • Screen sharing.
  • Meeting scheduling via Google Calendar, mobile devices, Hangouts Hardware/Chrome devices for meetings, the meeting URL, or the web at

Hangouts Meet also supports:

  • the Chrome browser. Firefox, Safari and Internet Explorer are expected to be supported in the second half of 2018.
  • new dial-in and dial-out functionality.
