Join a Google Hangout from Google Calendar

Did you know that you can join a Google Hangouts video call from Google Calendar?  Anytime you create an event in Google Calendar, it automatically sets up a video call.  To join any meeting that has been added to your calendar, click on the event, then click Join meeting.  This will launch Google Hangouts.  You’ll want to make sure you allow access to your device’s camera and microphone.  For more information click here.
