Starting July 27th, Google Hangouts Meet will be available to UWF faculty, staff, and students. Google Hangouts Meet is video-conferencing and telepresence software. Users in Hangouts Meet can simply send a link to anyone with a Gmail account to invite that person to join them in a meeting. Hangouts meeting invites created using Google Calendar will now default to Meet. Chat is not yet available in Hangouts Meet, but will be released at a later date. Meet is only available using Google Chrome.
