Online Hangouts

Instructions on how to set up ZOOM, Google Hangouts, etc.

There are many great options for tools for online group meetings, community group hangouts, or a virtual coffee chat. During this time of quarantine, we want you to be intentional about social distancing but to continue to be in community with each other. Think about how you can create an online community using one of these tools.


If you don't already have one you're comfortable with, here are some excellent choices. All allow multiple users, no downloads needed, and only the host needs to have an account.

Google Hangouts

Ideal for casual or smaller groups

Google Hangouts are free, easy to use, and good for discussions with friends. Good for up to 10 participants.

Zoom

Ideal for small or large groups, training or education

Free for meetings up to 45 minutes, very user-friendly, good presentation tools, can handle a large number of participants. Great for Community Group gatherings.

Microsoft Teams

Particularly good for teams that need to get work done together, share files or work on documents together. Limitation: max 4 people on-screen at once.
