New Hangouts In Gmail

by www.Gmail.com Login Team on 21 May, 2013

Google is bringing in many new features and improvements to Gmail and one such improvement is to bring Hangouts to Gmail. Instead of different versions of chat, video chat and calling across Google products, like Gmail, Hangouts gives you one consistent way to connect with other Gmail users. So with this new Gmail Hangouts feature you now have the option to switch from the current version of chat to Hangouts. With Gmail Hangouts, you will also be able to quickly send messages, have video calls with up to ten people at once, and share photos. Hangouts will be available in Gmail, Google+, Android Phones and Tablets, iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch and as a Windows, Mac or Linux desktop application using the Chrome extension.

How do you turn it off if the the Hangouts section in Gmail doesn’t even load?
