This is in line with every other solution like IBM Smartcloud or Citrix GoTo meeting, there isn't anything new or innovative about this it's just a little cheaper. Also comes with the nice vendor lock-in that it's not self-hosted so all those sensitive business conversations are going over google servers - see how that goes down at audit and also that you are required to have google apps.

Just wait for WebRTC to take hold. If the vendor didn't need to stream all that video through their nodes, they'd happily let consumers take the bandwidth hit.
