We here at Ongig (video job description platform) tried using Google+’s Hangouts feature for our Ongig daily huddle call this morning and it was super-easy and fun.

You just go to plus.google (all you need for Google+ is a Google Account (free)) and click “Start a hangout” on the right-hand column.

A nice plus — pardon the pun — was that Google lets you add animated reindeer antlers to your head.

It took us a good 10 minutes of making fun of each other before we got into the meeting!

I’m not sure if Google+ as a product will survive, but they definitely nailed the free 3-way call through the Hangouts feature.

  • Since iChat morphed into FaceTime I have been looking for a suitable replacement for video three-ways. Thanks for the tip Rob!
