in this paper, the author is speechless @ wuyu, hunting cloud network an authorised person of the author published




with Hangouts more than a month, finally unbearable back Google talk .

I Hangouts :

, this product is different from previous IM , which is based on dialogue ( Conversations ), rather than contact ( Contacts ) IM .



it show the main interface of the dialogue, rather than the contact list. (like micro letter, etc)


, it first contacts page shows the common contact

in addition, its future (now PC on the channel has been integrated Google Voice ), and VOIP .

from the point of the current layout, it is to want to do Whatsapp , also want to do Skype , at the same time also replace Google talk , in addition to pull on his brother + . Virtually Hangouts only a user will feel good, that is the social relationship and your real life has a number of friends also have a + G + .
