Google Hangouts improves video quality

Google is improving Hangouts with faster loading times, better video quality, and a streamlined interface.

“We’ve been using this new calling experience at Google for a while now. It’s early days, but we hope you like it as much as we do,” said Google.

The main changes to Google Hangouts are:

  • Calls that start faster and stay crisper, with higher-quality video
  • A more streamlined and immersive full-screen interface
  • A simpler way to invite friends and family to your calls

Users who prefer the previous version of Hangouts can still use it by visiting or by clicking the menu at the top right and choosing the Original version.
