Google enhancements for staff - Drive desktop app and Hangouts

Google

[06 May 2014]

Two new services have been made available to staff.

Google Drive desktop client

The first is the implementation of the Google Drive desktop client which brings Google Drive directly to your desktop. It allows you to save directly into Drive from all your familiar desktops applications. This means that your files will then be securely held and accessible from anywhere you have a web browser.

 Google Hangouts

The University has also enabled Google Hangouts. Hangouts expands on Google's Chat service, providing full HD video as well as text and is available for both mobile and desktop devices. For more information see the blog post on Google@UoB and the support information on the IT Services' website.
