Google Hangouts gets its own dedicated web app

Google has introduced a new web app for its Hangouts cross-device messaging app, a full two years after the app first launched to the world.

It’s live now at a convenient URL: hangouts.google.com/. (Hat tip to Droid Life for covering the new site today after Googler Jordanna Chord wrote a Google+ post introducing the new feature.)

The app allows users to make voice and video calls for free.
