Google Hangouts doesn’t require a plugin in Chrome

Google Hangouts doesn’t require a plugin in Chrome

Google is making using Hangouts even easier by building it into its Chrome browser. I reported this feature would be coming, but it has finally arrived in the experimental versions of Chrome.

If you’re running Chrome Canary or other developer build of Chrome, you can get this feature today. The rest of us will have to wait a few weeks until Google fixes all the bugs.

Users of other browsers like Firefox, Opera, and Internet Explorer will still need to install the plugin for Hangouts to work.
