When the Hangouts integration is enabled, you can create a meeting in Hangouts from your Sococo room, and other users can join by entering the room. This article will provide steps on how you can create a Hangouts meeting from Sococo.
To start a meeting on Hangouts, follow the steps below:
Click the Talk button (for Hangouts Meeting) at the top-right part of the screen.
If you are starting a Hangouts meeting from Sococo for the first time, you need to sign in and grant permissions.
Log into your Hangouts/Google account.
You might get a notification stating that the app has not been verified by Google yet. Click the Advanced link.
Click the "Go to sococo.com" link.
This is a temporary step until Google reviews the app.
Once you are logged in, click Allow to grant the Sococo app permission to view and edit your Calendar.
Once you grant the permissions, your Hangouts meeting will start.
If you are opening the Hangouts app for the first time, you might need to allow permission to use the microphone and camera.
The Hangouts meeting is created.
Any activity in Sococo (after you initiate the Hangouts meeting) will not close the meeting. You can move your avatar in the Sococo space, or even close the Sococo app, and your meeting will not be affected.
Once the meeting starts, the room you are in will have the meeting icon to the right of the room name, and the Talk and Join buttons are replaced with the End button.
All users that are present in the room (when you start a Hangouts meeting using the "Talk" button) will get the notification to join the meeting.
