Google Hangouts has had a significant batch of updates for enterprise users. Hangouts are now supported just the same as all of the other Google Apps for Business, which includes terms of service, certifications, and 99.9% guaranteed uptime. Third-party solutions providers now have a bunch of extra utilities available to extend Hangouts further in business. Admins can now remotely start, mute, and end a meeting, in addition to managing other Google Apps from their dedicated console.

These improvements go as much for the Android side as the built-for-business Chromeboxes and other platforms. Soon Chromeboxes will support hangouts across multiple local monitors. UK and Japan business users will be able to snag a Chromebox soon in addition to the current rollout available in the U.S., Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

How many of you guys use Google Apps regularly for work? Is video conferencing a big part of your routine?
