Google Hangouts & Spark integration

Google Hangouts is a unified communications service that enables text, voice, or video chats, either one-on-one or in a group. With Spark & Google Hangouts integration it’s easy to join meetings right from Spark’s built-in calendar. Learn how to create an event, add a Conference Call and join the meeting below.

Note: The Google Hangouts option is automatically available when you create an event from your @gmail.com email in the Google calendar: there is no need to connect Hangouts as other services in Spark.
