Google Ups The Hangout Limit To 15 In Google AppsBy: Chris Crum - November 15, 2012
Google announced today that it has extended the limit for the number of people you can invite to a Google+ hangout from 10 to 15.
“It’s still simple to get the most out of your hangouts: schedule a hangout in a calendar entry, join a hangout directly from Gmail and open a Google doc inside a hangout so everyone can write or edit together,” says Google Apps product manager Ronald Ho. “Finally, more schools will be able to use Google+. Until now, Google+ has only been available to verified higher education institutions. Now, any school using Google Apps for Education can enable Google+ and access the same features that businesses and government can.”
Google says the new features will be rolling out to Apps for Business, Education and Government customers over the next few days.
In June, Google announced that developers had built over 200 apps for Google+ hangouts.
Earlier this month, Google launched a new sidebar with new notifications and improved app management for Hangouts.
