UberConference has stepped up their game and included Google Hangouts as an available option for users of the FireSpotter Labs app to choose from when making conference calls. This looks like a partnership that may be one sided as of now, but if any acquisitions in the past can be an indication of what companies Google likes to buy then the UberConference could be one of them. Right now the application for Android can handle up to 100 users in one call at a time, though this is through voice and not an actual video chat.
With just under 50,000 downloads so far from Google’s Chrome Web Store, here at DMG we suspect those numbers to quadruple by the months end. Winner of TechCrunch’s Disrupt NY in 2012, UberConfrence looks to make this splash during a very pivotal moment as a new Google Chromebox for video conferencing has just been announced the same day. Ironic?, I think not.
To enable the UberConference feature, simply download it from the Chrome Store Here, then make sure you also have the Google Hangout’s Application installed from Here. You will notice the Google hangouts app is linked through the Google+ application, which once installed it will include both the Hangouts and Photo+ application.
Now a conference will never be the same with both video and voice calls managing to conference in the same virtual room without a hitch. See who is talking, have full voice control and of course manage who comes and goes from a UberConference/Hangout with a simple clicks.
Earlier this year FireSpotter Labs also connected their UberConference application with Google Drive, this is the second Google linkup the company has completed furthering speculation that the company will be full integrated into Google soon.
Leave your thoughts below on how the new integration stacks up if you have had the chance to try it out. What other video or voice services are you utilizing for group and or conference calling?
