Hangouts is now available in more places than ever. Currently we can find Hangouts pre-installed on our mobile devices, and hidden in the sidebar of Gmail and Google+. There is a Chrome extension, and a Chrome app for Hangouts. Well after today’s Marshmallow announcement, Google slipped a little update to everyone.
We can now use Hangouts in the browser, via a dedicated web page. Simply navigate to hangouts.google.com, and all of your conversations can be found there. What also makes this pretty cool, is the fact that you can have multiple conversations open at the same time, without having to switch between or close them.
While Hangouts is already available practically everywhere else, it’s interesting to see Google bringing us another option to keep in touch with our friends and those who want to send us random messages. Just for giggles, if you navigate to that URL in your mobile browser, it directs you to the Google Play link to just download Hangouts on your device. Of course, we weren’t expecting anything else, but hey, it was fun to try.
What do you think about Google offering a new place to use Hangouts? Is this a welcome addition, or do you think this is kind of unnecessary? Sound off in the comments below and let us know what you think.
