How to Use Google Hangouts to Stay Connected

posted by Bethel Production | Mar 20, 2020

While we’re maintaining a safe social distance, we all need a way to be able to connect to each other on a personal level. One way to do that is with Google Hangouts. Google Hangouts is a video chat application that will allow us to meet face-to-face from the comfort of wherever we may be.

In this video, we’ll show you how to join an existing Google Hangouts meeting, or start your own meeting.

You can connect to Google Hangouts in your browser or through the app on your phone, but you will need a Google account to join. Ask a friend, family member, or someone in your small group to help if you’re not sure how to do this.

Here’s how to use Google Hangouts in your internet browser.

HOW TO JOIN

  1. To join a Google Hangouts meeting, simply open your email invite, and click on the Join Meeting button.
  2. Log in using your Google account username and password.
  3. If prompted by your browser, allow Hangouts to access your camera and microphone.

HOW TO START A MEETING IN YOUR BROWSER

  1. First, open your internet browser and go to hangouts.google.com
  2. Next, select the Video Call option.
  3. Log in using your Google account username and password.
  4. If prompted by your browser, allow Hangouts to access your camera and microphone.
  5. To invite someone to join your meeting, select the Copy Link to Share button, and paste the link into an email to the people you want to invite.
