Now Google Docs is covered in Hangouts on Google Plus

Google has added a feature to Google Plus Hangouts which enables you to share your Google Docs documents, spreadsheets, and notes while you are in a Hangout. This is a great feature in Hangouts which seems to be a great way to your hangouts more efficient. With this new feature, now you can share your documents from Google Docs, create and upload new documents, and work with others jointly to edit documents when in a hangout with just a few clicks.

You can see that the new “Docs” button in Hangouts to deal with your Google Docs documents. By clicking that button, you can start to use this great new feature.

This new feature is likely to be beneficial particularly among teachers and students. Now students can do their studies more effectively by work in hangout groups or even joining sessions with their teachers.  Of course, this is an awesome feature for business professionals as well, and I can see my team using this quite a bit.


  1.  I don’t think this will solve basic problem. undoubtedly  Hangouts and Google docs is great integration but since there are many issues when it comes to Google docs just like Google Spreadsheets is online, why doesn’t it go beyond versioning and creating multiple copies of the same data? What if I want to share different filters of the same spreadsheet for others to update and make my life easier?
    I would be interested in some alternatives to Google docs and have come across this tool called CollateBox looks promising to me.
