Google Hangouts

Hangouts works inside Google+, just like it does with Gmail. ACC faculty can connect with others from any computer and use Hangouts to make a live video call with up to 10 friends. Conversations just flow from text-to-video/voice-and-back.

Google Hangouts is part of the Google Suite of tools available to ACC faculty, staff and students.
