Introducing Google Hangouts Meet

Hangouts Meet is a new video meeting service designed to make joining meetings effortless. It allows you to smoothly run large and small video conferences by a shared link — no accounts, plugins, downloads, or hassles. Meet provides a place to join from Google Calendar, an email invite, or a web link. Classic Hangouts are not affected with the addition of Meet and continue to function as before.


With Meet, native, full-screen presenting makes it easy to showcase your team’s research and projects. And as Meet integrates directly with U-M Google, information you need about each meeting is automatically pulled from Calendar. See how Hangouts Meet compares to classic Hangouts.
