Google webcam chat

Its text chat is basic, much like the older IM-style Google Talk app, but Hangouts' high-quality videos with 25 participants more than made up for that.

If your team's enabled Hangouts Meet in G Suite admin, you can schedule new calls right from Hangouts Meet—and for all other G Suite accounts you can schedule a video call in Google Calendar, and join them from Meet. You'll see a list of your upcoming meetings as in the top screenshot on this article.

Tap the correct meeting, then join the video call much as you would for a standard Hangouts video.

It's a brand-new team chat app from Google, one that's most similar to apps like Slack and Hip Chat than anything Google has released so far. Hangouts Chat is focused on ongoing conversations between teams in your company.
