Working with Google+ Hangouts

Working Smarter

Charles Jennings and I just completed a 90-minute session on Google+, our first time using it for collaborative work.

We were planning a new product and edited our business plan on Google Docs simultaneously, as we discussed it. The top two-thirds of the screen showed the document in real time; video of each of us appeared below. We also reviewed a presentation on SlideShare. I shared my screen with Charles.

Everything works together seamlessly.

Navigating Google+ is intuitive. No more RYFM.

Google+ raises the bar for collaboration environments. Give it a try.
