We argue that designing for fluid control of the obligations of turn exchange is key to mobile applications intended to support everyday messaging. Although carefully collected, accuracy cannot be guaranteed. Differing provisions from the publisher's actual policy or licence agreement may be applicable.
The Google “Hangouts” feature launched back in June 2011, providing a forum where up to 10 people (or, in rare cases, Muppets) can join together for a group video chat.
Many participants struggled with the self-presentation obligations of video when attempting more everyday conversation.
But, according to a Google spokesperson, the most popular Hangout app so far has been this one: “Google Effects” lets you adorn your on-screen image with ridiculous accoutrements.

The fluidity of the software itself is also stunning: The hats, glasses, and facial hair instantly scale to your face and track your image around the screen, retaining proper size and orientation as you lean forward and back or sway side to side.
This is no doubt a vital contribution to the science of virtual mustache wearing.
Through week-long in-home deployments with five couples, we gain formative insights into the adoption and usage of at-a-distance media consumption and how couples communicated during said consumption.
We then examine how the imminent availability and potential adoption of consumer VR HMDs could affect preferences toward how synchronous at-a-distance media consumption is conducted, in a laboratory study of 12 pairs, by enhancing media immersion and supporting embodied telepresence for communication.
ABSTRACT: This paper reports on how asynchronous mobile video messaging presents users with a challenge to doing 'being ordinary'.
53 participants from three countries were recruited to try Skype Qik at launch for two weeks.Yet video chat is also used to engage in more private activities such as gossiping, flirting, and even the viewing of sexual acts.This presents an interesting design challenge of supporting teen use of video chat while mitigating privacy and parental concerns.In March of this year, Google debuted about 200 apps meant to enhance the Hangouts experience.There are tools devoted to collaborative business productivity and to multiplayer gaming.
