Before Facebook officially announced about Facebook Video Calling, Google with his Google+, the Social Networking, already announced about Google+ Hangout that works exactly like Video Calling but with enhanced capability to make Video Conference with up to 10 people at once. Unfortunately, we aren’t able to give you an example of how to use this Hang Out feature with 2 people or more due to our lack of friend list that we are able to invite, but we gave you how to do Hangout by step by step instruction as cam to cam Video Calling. Are you ready?
