Thing 9 – Google Hangout

Platforms such as google hangout will be of great importance in a professional setting going forward in the coming years. Google hangout skype, and any other video messaging platform ticks so many boxes regarding topical issues. They are a means by which people can connect virtually and, as a result, reduce the carbon footprint of travel, whilst still allowing people to connect and interact with others.

They also allow those with mobility problems or issues with accessing a central setting to participate in a discussion which they may be otherwise excluded from. As we covered in one of the other things, accessibility is incredibly important and by widening opportunity to a greater pool of people, a greater range of perspectives can be included in a wider conversation.

With the current climate surrounding coronavirus, video chats may become increasingly relevant, allowing people to continue to engage with colleagues while a turbulent situation continues to progress.
