The most valuable features are the chat features and the video conferencing features that enable more than two or three people to be connected at a time.Very good voice and video calling options.Google Hangouts is very quick and easy to use, and the quality is very good.The group chat is a very good feature, where you can see all of the participants on cameras.The screen sharing is the most valuable feature. It ties in with Google docs and Google sheets so that we can work on a single document as a whole group of us at once. That's the biggest feature we rely on.The ability to share a screen during a meeting is one of the most valuable features. You can also be directly connected on the computer and on the phone with the same account. It is flexible.

Cons
I was in touch with one of our clients and they mentioned that they would like to have a holographic video conferencing. It would be great if that feature would be added.

There should be more space for multiple users at a time so that multiple people can connect, can share, and even transfer control to another colleague, employer, student, etc.Sending documents and other things is not an option.I would like to have a whiteboard feature, where I can draw a sketch or diagram and show it to the people in the meeting.I would like to see more focus on features for interacting with the participants in a group chat, such as screen sharing.The way it works with anonymous users should be improved. That could be strengthened to let anonymous users do more.Not a ten because there's room for improvement. Sometimes there is disconnectivity.We purchased a videoconference system called Zoom. We want to see if Google Hangouts has the ability to integrate our Zoom device to use it with Hangouts and meet directly.
