Google just announced a feature that was previously available only in the ‘Extras’ version of Hangouts: full Google Docs/Google+ hangout integration.
With this move along with screen sharing, Google is making it harder and harder to ignore Google+ as not just a social media platform, but a full fledged, honest to goodness business productivity tool. But what I think is really happening is that Google+ Hangouts are slowly but surely becoming what they wanted Google Wave to be. I think that Wave came too soon and was too different. Google is letting people get used to an expected feature set, letting it become normal and expanding.
Will this new feature, along with screen sharing draw in more business use? Will it eventually be Wave 2.0?
