Both Hangouts Meet and classic Hangouts will be available to CWRU community members. Please note, Hangouts Meet will only work in the Chrome browser.
Google Drive Visual Refresh

Google drive received a visual refresh over the past few days. There are no functionality changes, but you'll notice that the header bar now has a few changes.
