  • Circles: Google has come up with the exclusive concept of circles — you can create a circle of contacts that are family, friends, work friends, former co-workers and so on.

  • Hangout: It is essentially group video chat done in a unique and different way; all you need to do is click on the Hangout button and invite members of a certain group by sending them a notification. Moreover, Google uses its own platform to perform this rather than a third party.
