Google has announced some tweaks that are coming to Hangouts calls on the web intended to streamline the interface a bit and improve video quality. The new experience was announced by Google software engineer Eduardo Fernández, and includes moving the call control buttons down to the bottom middle of the screen and some tweaks to make calls start faster with crisper full-screen video. Here's the breakdown:
- Calls that start faster and stay crisper, with higher quality video
- A more streamlined and immersive full-screen interface
- A simpler way to invite friends and family to your calls
Fernández notes that the refreshed Hangouts experience will begin rolling out to a small group of people today, and it will expand across the globe in the coming days. If you find that you prefer the current experience more after the new one is rolled out, you'll be able to switch back using the "Original version" setting in the Hangouts menu.
