    "Work video messaging"


    Designed specifically for use in and outside of your work place, Hangouts Meet lets you set-up video meetings. This video calling app integrates directly into your Google Calendar, allowing you to have your work team meet up. Your home screen will use your selfie camera to start a meeting. Swiping up from the bottom will let you see upcoming meetings. Once you have a valid meeting code, simply enter it under Menus and initiate your video meeting.


    Hangouts Meet provides a clean, polished, and straightforward video calling app that rivals Skype and is incredibly easy to use, making for a solid app among group work colleagues.


    As the app developer states, in order to unlock the full capabilities of Hangouts Meet, you must have a G Suite enabled account. Plus, those looking to video chat with their friends will have to look elsewhere, which is unfortunate, as Google has provided the tools for a perfect video messenger.
