I want to preface this with one thing: I hate Skype. Even before Microsoft bought them.
I wish we’d been able to test it with more people, but as it is, it’s pretty solid. There was a little lag at the beginning of our chat which quickly rectified itself and the video quality was way better than anything I’ve every managed to get while Skyping my folks. Audio was also top notch.
Although the idea behind Google+ Hangouts really baffles me. Sitting around on a social network, waiting for people to video chat with you at random seems pretty pathetic. As a group video chatting tool though, I like it.
PS. I’m still not sure about this whole Google+ thing on a whole. So still hit me up on Facebook or Twitter for the time being.
