Hangout Chat has been designed to be used by large groups of people, making it suitable for small business as well as larger organisations. A chat group can be broken up into smaller rooms, which can be tailored to different tasks or projects e.g. and each these rooms can house up to 8,000 participants.
as of now, Hangout Chat supports 28 languages, and there are 25 bundled bots that can be used to help automate tasks and use other Google services such as Drive and Calendar.
