Gmail email will receive an upgrade to Google+ Hangout from today. As reported by Google “You can chat with all the same people before and now not only if they are using Gmail, but if they are connected to Google + from your computer, or IOS devices with Android”
The new system is much more powerful and will allow up to 10 simultaneous video chat. “At the same time they can watch videos from YouTube, Google docs to collaborate on and share them on screen,” the company said.
In this way Google continues to position Gmail as a tool very useful to me and of great importance within the company.
The updates will be available gradually, and for all users
Yahoo! explained that hackers exploited a security weakness in their computer systems.
“It was much more than Yahoo!,” said researcher Marcus Carey Rapid7. “We can assume that tens of thousands of people out of Yahoo! services could be compromised,” he added. Among the data is about 106,000 addresses from Gmail, Hotmail 55,000 and about 25,000 of AOL email service.
Yahoo! apologized for the security flaw in a statement, the latest in a series of bad news for a company that has lost two chief executives in a year and is struggling to revive revenue growth.
The company spokeswoman Dana Lengkeek did not identify other companies whose credentials were stolen nor specify how many of the stolen accounts belonged to Yahoo! sites
