Google has added support for Google Docs collaboration to the core Google Hangouts experience.
Until now, this feature was only available to users who had access to Google Hangouts with Extras.
You can now use Google+ Hangouts to collaborate with friends and colleagues on documents.
Google developer Robin Schriebman highlighted the capabilities of this integration:
– You can add an existing document, or upload a new one
– Added documents are available as a list on the left-hand side
– You can switch between and collaboratively edit multiple documents at once
