Google has announced that the full Google Docs suite is now fully integrated with Google+ Hangouts. The integration means that Google Doc users will now have the option to video chat with collaborators within their web-based document.
Previously the feature was accessible through an opt-in program “Hangouts with extras” along with several other features like Screensharing, Sketchpad, and Mobile hangouts.
Google developer Robin Schriebman announced the integration on her Google+ page yesterday.
To try out the new feature:
- Click on the new “Docs” button inside your hangout
- Add an existing document, or upload a new one
- View & choose from added documents, which appear as a list on the left-hand side
- Edit one document or switch between and collaboratively edit multiple documents at once
