- Quicker and less formal than email.
- Create as many groups as you like.
- Professional and connected to your Google account.
- Access from anywhere by logging into Google.

Google Hangouts allows my students to communicate between each other and with their lecturers for an easy way of sharing information. My students often have group chats using Hangouts and use them to talk about current work and stay up to date with assignments from various staff members.
