Cacoo, a user-friendly online drawing tool that allows you to create a variety of diagrams, such as sitemaps, wireframes and network charts, has started to provide “Cacoo for Google+ Hangouts” to help extend the users’ real time collaboration experience.
So what is Cacoo? Cacoo is a product of Nulab, a ten year old Japanese startup which aims to provide an easy-to-use online diagramming and design applications solution for anyones who wants to collaborate with one another. Cacoo runs on Flash application and hence is entirely browser-based, free and features a library of icons users can drag and drop to create site maps, wireframes, flow charts, network diagrams, mind maps, and more. On top of that, you could also explore its other features such as resize, flip and skew them, create their own components from existing ones, upload images to include in the diagrams, and more.
Aside from being free and easy to use, its main selling point is that it allows multiple users to create and edit designs collaboratively and in real-time, so naturally, it makes sense for the platform to launch its new “Cacoo for Google+ Hangouts”, which brings “the future of meeting room” to users now. With this integration, members can now share diagrams during a live video chat:
This is really great news for existing Cacoo users and also for those who are new to Cacoo. There have been good reviews from Techcrunch as well as Mashable so if you are interested to find out more, do check them out.
