IT Manager at a transportation company with 501-1,000 employees
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 at once. That's the biggest feature we rely on. Other than that, it's quick communication. You can send a quick chat message if you need or you can have a long video call conference if you need as well. It is flexible. It's a very good all-around solution. View full review »

Testing Center of Excellence - Head at a tech services company with 1,001-5,000 employees
The most valuable feature is the seamless integration with Google Suite. For example, in Google Calendar, if you set a meeting then it will automatically prepare the google Meet or Google Hangouts meeting for you. It gives you the ability to make online presentations, and there is a little-known tool that allows you to use it as a remote desktop. It is very easy to use and is available as soon as you open a Google account. The recently added noise-cancellation feature works well. View full review »

The most valuable features are that you don't have to create a separate account, it's easy to use, and you don't have to enter an ID or password to start video conferencing. This is because it is already in your Google account. View full review »

What I like best is that once a person starts speaking, you will see immediately who it is. The group chat is a very good feature, where you can see all of the participants on cameras. Online sessions are reliable and there are almost no glitches. View full review »

I like the voice and video calling options because I feel that Google Hangouts has more voice clarity and video clarity than Skype most of the time. It may even be better than Zoom which sometimes lags and tends to crash quite often. View full review »
