Gathered here are 10 serious Google services that can boost your productivity, get your team on the same page, and market your company. You probably already use some of these services for fun — like Hangouts — but they have powerful business applications as well.
Google often promotes Hangouts as a video chat room for friends and family, but the chat rooms also have features that make them useful for business meetings. Not only can you see and hear up to ten participants, but you can collaborate on Google Drive documents, share your screen, or run third-party apps. A Hangout may not offer all the features of a commercial web-conferencing tool such as WebEx or GoToMeeting, but the ones it does have may be all that a geographically dispersed team needs — and it's free.
