How to answer a Google Hangouts video call from Gmail

Once you have added Hangouts you’ll be able to join and create calls. Joining a video call from your Gmail is easy, and there are many ways you can do it.

Note: Sometimes people have trouble joining video calls because they’re signed in to a different account in their browsers. So make sure you’re signed in to the account your Hangouts invitations w35144324ere sent to.


If someone starts a one-on-one Hangout with you, a chat window appears in the bottom corner of your Gmail screen (or, if you have the Hangouts Chrome Desktop app installed, in the bottom corner of your computer screen).

Click answer, and a new window opens with your Hangout.
