Hi Maria,

I just tried it and it looks good!
I will give it a try in my own meetings too.
I confirm Google Hangouts doesn't work on all browsers. I had to install
Chrome to use hangouts.
Skype has improved his technology for linux users. Now it is possible to
share your screen and view several camera images. Also the quality improved.

Thanks for sharing.
