Google Hangouts Chat comes pre-equipped with 25 workflow bots and an API platform that will enable developers to build additional integrations.

Following Google's decision to make its Hangouts platform more business-centric, the company later announced that they will be launching Hangouts Meet and Hangouts Chat, with the latter being Google's take on Slack which has been created to be a communications platform for the workspace.

Dropbox has joined forces with Google Cloud to bring integration with G Suite. This is a big deal for the storage company, as more than 50 percent of Dropbox users have a G Suite account.

Ritcha Ranjan, director of product management at Google Cloud, said that the goal of the partnership on Google's end is to make G Suite more accessible to users, regardless of the other platforms they're using.

It is also available on a variety of operating systems, such as Windows, macOS, iOS, and Android.

Teams can use Chat to speed up a lot of the manual effort involved in collaborative projects such as searching for files, booking conference rooms and other routine tasks, Google said.

This will mean users will be able to use Gmail, Docs, Sheets, Slide and Hangouts with Dropbox, instead of Google Drive, if they so wish.

For many small businesses who want fully integrated and affordable solutions, G Suite with Hangouts Chats is a great option.

The @Drive bot keeps team members abreast about changes to shared files, while the @Meet bot schedules team meetings on command based on its access to everyone's Google Calendar. With them, you'll be able to select files from your Dropbox account and send links directly from Gmail and Hangouts Chat. "For example, a bot can take a location from a user, look it up using the Google Maps API and display the resulting map right within the same message thread in Hangouts Chat", the two product managers said.

Google noted that it is compatible with the original Hangout softwares.

Collaboration security will also be improved as party of the integration.
