I was hoping I could use Hangouts as chat-rooms, but it doesn't seem that easy.

What I was expecting is that I can bring my Hangout contacts into a chat-room authorized by their hangout ID. Also all members should have access to all the history of the chat-room.

Is this possible? Is it possible with some other tools?

Need authorization by GMail or similar, and good support on different platforms.

If you are looking for group chat functionality, then yes, Hangouts has it.

First, pick one of the contacts in your group that you want to add to the chat. pic1

Then, you'll see the chat box pop up. Click the little icon of a person with a plus sign to add more people to the room.


Keep adding people as needed.
