A Google Hangout is a great way to collaborate with colleagues face to face, and now you can invite even more people into one.

Google have announced an increase to the number of people allowed in a Hangout, from the current limit of 10 to a new limit of 15. So, if you haven’t yet tried a Hangout from your Google Apps or Google+ account, now is a great time to try it out. Google Hangouts let you hold face-to-face meetings with others from any device with a camera and an internet connection. To hold a Hangout either start one directly from your Gmail account, schedule a meeting and include a Hangout or open your Google+ account and start one from there.

The new feature will be rolling out to Apps for Business, Education and Government customers over the next few days.
