Google Hangouts Help Centre
Beginning July 30, 2020, Google Chat will be introduced at Ryerson as a replacement for Google Hangouts, the text-based messaging app currently used at the university. While Hangouts will still be available for the time being, Google has announced its permanent retirement of Hangouts later this year.
Please refer to the Google Chat Help Centre for FAQs and support.
Hangouts is an app that allows you to send instant messages to individuals and groups of up to 150 people as well as to video conference and share your screen with up to 25 people.
To access Hangouts:
- Log into my.ryerson.ca and find Hangouts under the Apps tab.
- If you’re using Gmail in a browser, find Hangouts on the left-hand side, below your Gmail labels.
- Via the apps icon in the upper right-hand corner of any Google application - be sure to click More.
