Meetings, Webinars, Online Meetings, Gatherings and Video Calls
There are going to be different sorts of meetings, for example you might only just need to talk to somebody and rather than use the phone you might just use Skype. Within a Skype meeting you can have a number of participants and recently it is also possible to have meetings where you can see each other, as in a video call.
With Google Plus you have something similar with the Hangout facility. The way that the Hangout works is nice, in that you get a row of images of the people in the meeting in the bottom part of the screen and the person that is talking goes to the main part of the screen, as in bigger, and that works automatically. You can set it if you want to, so that you have just one person that is always the main speaker in your Google plus, as it gets annoying if the image is constantly changing based upon noises going into certain persons’ microphones.
