Google Hangouts

During the summer of 2012, I worked on the Hangouts team at Google building apps and games for the hangouts web platform. Our team led the effort for building the numerous apps found in the hangouts experience (Effects, Screen Share, Sharing Writing, a few simple games).

I pitched and built the first few iterations of the snapshots (Capture) app over the summer. The app allowed users to take group photos in a collage while video chatting, and share these photos through Google+ and Facebook. While Hangouts was popular, it was one of the most used apps within hangouts and is the third app shown on the screen.

During the development I worked with Basheer Tome for design work.
