Google+ Hangouts allow you to have group voice and video conversations with up to 10 people at once across different devices and across the world. We’ve been working closely with Google to combine the power of Google+ Hangouts with Insightly, and we’re excited to announce that today we’re launching integrated Google+ Hangouts right inside Insightly.
Let’s say you want to bring together several of your contacts to discuss an upcoming feature of your product currently in development. Select those contacts you want to speak with in Insightly, and in just two clicks invite them to connect and join a video or voice Hangout with you. Insightly can even create a Hangout between you and a contact by calling their phone number directly inside Insightly.
Here’s how it works in just three very easy steps:
1. First select up to 10 contacts from the contact list and click the new Hangouts button that appears in the header.
2. Insightly will open a popup listing the contacts you have selected, and all you need to do is click on the green ‘Start a Hangout’ button to invite those users to join you in a new Hangout. If you have selected one contact Insightly will give you the option to call that contacts phone number and join the two of you in a new Hangout.
3. After you have clicked the ‘Start a Hangout’ button, a new Hangout window will open with all the selected users ready for you to invite to join your new Hangout.
If you have chosen one contact with a phone number, the new Hangout window will give you the option to call that user immediately on their listed phone number to join your Hangout.
Google+ Hangouts are free, and the ability to select and invite contacts to join you in a video call or conference right from within Insightly is a very powerful feature. Hangouts also allows you to share your screen with other participants, capture and keep still photos from the call, and share your files with other participants through an integrated Google Drive interface. We’re excited to bring the power of Google+ Hangouts to all of our customers today - happy calling !
