How to invite anyone to your Hangouts group in the new update

google hangouts

Although Hangouts is one of the less appreciated messaging apps out there, it’s certainly not  a bad one. In fact, Google regularly updates it with new features and fixes. The newest update brings the ability to invite people to your group without having to manually add them, and without having to have them in your contact list.

The feature works by creating a shareable link that one can share anywhere, anyhow. Once a Hangouts user clicks on the link, they’ll be added into the group as a regular user.

Although the feature may not have reached your device yet, some lucky users may already have the feature enabled. Follow these steps on an Android device to create a link:

The process does not differ much if you’re using a computer:

It’s a shame that Hangouts is not a more popular app as it delivers a great user experience. Do you agree?
