If you don't like Hangouts in a pop up window, this handy link lets you start a Hangout in a new tab.

With the launch of the new integrated Hangouts in Gmail, more Google Apps users are trying out the excellent video conferencing from Google. If you like Hangouts but don't like the pop up window opening when you start a Hangout, the link below will open a Hangout in a new tab. Bookmark it as a handy link to arrange a Hangout.

The new Hangouts can be enabled from the Google Apps Settings section of your control panel (or by your administrator if you have Google Apps for Business). If you haven't tried Google Hangouts yet or signed up for Google+, now is a great time to try it out for yourself.

Let us know what you think of the link to open a Hangout in a new tab in the Comments below.
