I frequently get asked about how to create a Google Hangout. Google Hangouts are a great way to video chat with other Google users. They are free and easy to setup and use. There are 3 ways to easily start a Google Hangout.
1. Go into your Google Plus account "+ You" on any Google Page
Find the "Home" menu on the top-left side of the page
Select Video Hangout
2. Go to your GMail page
Find a contact on the bottom-left corner
Hover over that contact
Click the camera button to start Hangout
3. Go to your Calendar page
Create a new event
Include video call
Invite other users
The event will contain a link to join video Call.
Here is a video demonstrating all of these methods.
Google has listened to many users that wanted their "Shared with Me" button back in the new Google Drive. Google changed "Incoming" back to "Shared with Me." It also added some features that will be demonstrated in the video below.
The changes include-
1. Being able to click on the object - Incoming would only allow "hovering," when you wanted to work with an item in your "Incoming" folder.
2. Being able to drag an item directly into a folder that is on your Google "My Drive."
3. Being able to select multiple items at one time. You can do this on a mac by holding down the command key. This used to be an option in the old drive, because you could select with check boxes. I say, "Welcome Back!" to this feature.
