Is it a trend for women to use Google Hangouts?

It is a tendency among women that, when you communicate with folks one-on-one on your strong platform of choice (which might include any big social media site; for me, it was obviously Twitter), 90 percent of them want you to continue conversations on Google's Hangouts program. It may be a trend, but it isn't exclusive to women. Men love it too.

Hangouts are video chat programs that run on the web or your mobile phone. They're built into Gmail and many other services as well. The beauty of Hangouts is that you can link up with others who are using the service, which lets you make contact with people who don't online regularly. You can also add images, documents, and links to your chats.

Hangouts has been widely adopted because it's easy to use and allows for flexible scheduling. There's no need to set up expensive teleconferencing equipment - just register with the service of your choice and start chatting!

Gmail users will know exactly what I mean when I say that communicating via Hangout is like having a virtual assistant who is always around and ready to help. You can text, email, or call anyone in your contact list and have a conversation through photos, videos, or voice calls. It's highly convenient if you need to talk quickly with someone over the internet.

What’s the point of Google Hangouts?

Google Hangouts is a unified communications service that allows members to initiate and participate in one-on-one or group text, audio, or video chats. Hangouts is embedded into Google+ and Gmail, and mobile Hangouts applications for iOS and Android devices are available.

Use Hangouts to connect with friends and family anywhere in the world, no matter what device they're using. Share your screen so someone else can watch you work while you chat at the same time. Or call someone through Google Voice while you both talk via video chat.

Hangouts features include:

• Text, audio, or video chat with up to 10 participants in a single conversation • Connections are synced across all your devices - phones, tablets, laptops, etc. - so everyone's online all the time • Video calls support up to 8 people at once • See who's available on each connection line • Moderators can kick users out of a room if they break protocol • Audio calls let you speak without typing (like a phone call) • Start a call by sending an instant message to the chat • Messages appear as bubbles in the conversation thread • Archive every conversation • Search for any conversation or member • Create groups for easy management of large conversations • Access from anywhere there's an Internet connection • No software required

Hangouts works by connecting you with other people who have the app installed.

Is Google Talk and Hangouts the same thing?

Google Talk, often known as "Gchat," is finally being phased out. Google launched Hangouts in 2013 as a more feature-rich chat service to replace Talk in the Gmail sidebar, although users have been free to continue using the older, more basic service if they choose. Starting April 30th, no new features will be added to Google Talk, so existing features such as video chatting will still work but new ones such as voice calling will not. Users will be able to continue using the service until June 1st when all active users will be required by law to upgrade to Hangouts.

In addition to serving as a replacement for Talk, Hangouts also offers many features not found in Google+ Messenger. These include video calling, which was previously only available through the + platform; group video calls, which can include up to 10 participants; audio calling; screen sharing; and photo sharing.

Here's how Google describes Hangouts vs. Google+ Messenger: "Hangouts are video chats that can include up to 10 people. You can make voice calls too. Message someone else who's in the room or just listen to audio messages."

So basically, Hangouts is Google's answer to Skype. However, while Hangouts supports audio, video, and screen sharing, Google+ Messenger is strictly an audio messaging service.
