New Release Allows Easy Drag & Drop of Files Into a Business Hangout
A convenient feature to share a copy of your slides or any other document you reference during your presentation.
You can now share any file inside a Business Hangouts by dragging it from your local disk or your desktop and dropping it anywhere in the Business Hangouts unified chat. All attendees, both participants and viewers, will be prompted to accept the file through a pop up window. If they do, the file will get downloaded. They can of course discard the pop up and refuse it.
The file will stay in this BHO Event portfolio permanently, so if you have activated the BHO Events feature and some of your attendees join after the event, they can check the list of shared files under the new files icon above the chat window and download the file.
The feature is available to hosts and moderators, under the free STANDARD plan. They can also delete a previously shared file. This feature is integrated with Google Drive; The host’s drive is used for storage of the files.
Another new feature is the ability for the host and the moderators to delete the unified chat posts. This feature completes the moderated chat which requires approval for comments to become public. It applies to non moderated or moderated chats indifferently.
This new release has also fixed several bugs including the inability of bringing a viewer into the panel, when coming from an embedded BHO.
Enjoy the new release!
