Google Hangouts is an online communication tool that enables video and audio calls with the option of recording online sessions. Hangouts can be accessed via your Gmail profile, thus logging in to Gmail will grant you access to Hangouts. Group sessions are set up within the user’s calendar events. It is advised to add between 30 to 50 participants per session even though Google Hangouts allow up to 250 attendees per session. Please see the attached link which shows how to use, record and share.
