Hangouts now supports any Google Apps customer account

We’ve heard from educators that multi-way video calling would be a useful tool for learning. It would help students connect with experts and with each other, and would help educators teach remotely and collaborate with their peers. So starting today, Hangouts video meetings support any Google Apps customer account (http://goo.gl/L5xha4), including those without a Google+ profile. Google Apps customers can start or join a high-definition video meeting that connects 15 participants from their computer (and coming soon for mobile and tablet). Multi-way calling will also be available if you’re using Google Talk. 

To help you get started, we’ve put together 10 ways to use multi-way video calling in class: http://goo.gl/93b1c4. We can’t wait to see how you’ll use this new feature.

  5. +Landon Finch – What you have said here is exactly what I’ve been asking and wishing for from +Google for Education. While they won’t say this, I think and hope that #GoogleClassroom will actually go far in this direction for K-8 schools due to #COPPA. +Ryan Bretag just did a great presentation at #LHS1to1 about the benefits of Google+ for learning!
