Integrations are essential for productive work environments, and we want to ensure your favorite cloud applications work in harmony with one another. That’s why we’re excited to announce our latest integration with Google, RingCentral for Hangouts Chat.
Hangouts Chat is a secure collaboration tool within Google Workspace bringing teams together. RingCentral integrates within a room in Hangouts Chat to bring you a seamless and quick way to start a RingCentral video meeting or call. This native integration makes it easier for your teams to access RingCentral without having to switch applications.
Marty Piombo, VP of Strategic Partnerships at RingCentral, is focused on bringing the best user experience to our customers through business partnerships. “RingCentral is dedicated to growing our partnership with Google as a Recommended for Google Workspace partner as well as a Chrome Technology partner,” says Piombo. “With deep integrations across the Google ecosystem, we provide our enterprise customers a frictionless communications and collaboration solution within the productivity applications they use every day.”
How does RingCentral for Hangouts Chat work?
RingCentral for Hangouts Chat is an add-on bot found in Hangouts Chat. This integration improves team conversations within Hangouts Chat for a native and intuitive experience to make a RingCentral call, start a RingCentral meeting, and view call controls. Once the RingCentral bot is installed, users do not need to switch applications to access their RingCentral accounts; Room members can simply type @RingCentral to access RingCentral services.
We’re excited to extend our integrations with RingCentral for Google and are committed to bringing our Google Workspace users frictionless engagement across Google Cloud applications.
