Dropbox plans to develop a range of cross-platform integrations in collaboration with Google Cloud, which is meant to connect G Suite tools and content with the global platform.

Hangouts Chat is available from the web browser, or from iOS and Android apps.

Hangouts Chat was recently transitioned out of its beta form, and is readily becoming an integral component of Google's in-progress G Suite.

Students, employees, and individuals outside of business and education could add one another to Hangouts Chat - abilities included everything from one-on-one communication to chatting in groups of thousands of people, virtually covering the entirety of larger businesses' workforces - to discusss business, schoolwork, personal issues, a mixture of all three, and everything else under the sun.

"Dropbox users will be able to create, open, edit, save, and share Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides directly from Dropbox", the release said.

"This partnership with Google Cloud is one more way we're creating a unified home for content and the conversations around it". Businesses who are already paying for G Suite will get Hangouts Chat for no additional cost, making it an attractive alternative to Slack.

"Chat also comes equipped with 25 bots to help speed up workflows, ranging from finance and human resources to CRM, project management and more", Johnston said. Similarly, a Meet bot uses Google Calendar to schedule meetings for the user.

With support for 28 languages and up to 8,000 members per room, Hangouts Chat offers features similar to Microsoft Teams, Cisco Spark and Slack.

With millennials projected to constitute 75 percent of the USA workforce by 2025, Google should benefit from the younger generation's familiarity with Gmail, Hangouts and its other cloud platforms, said Alaa Saayed, an analyst with Frost & Sullivan, based in San Antonio.

Google noted that it is compatible with the original Hangout softwares.
