Enabling Hangouts in Gmail
Pros of hangouts:
Face to face conversations
Group chat with up to 100 people
There is a good chance that you already have Google Hangouts enabled, but, in the event that you do not, here is how you do it
1) On the left side of your gmail window, (if you are not already logged into hangouts) you will have the option to Sign in.
2) Once you have done that, you may or may not have to “Try the new Hangouts.” If you do, click that, and then you have activated hangouts in your Google account
