Hangouts update: Streamlining group chat creation on the web

In the improved flow, you can now name your group chats more easily when you are creating a group chat. Once the group chat has a name, this allows you to create "placeholder" group chats which you can then share with a link.

So you can set up and name your group chat, then invite people to join the chat via a link.

An advantage of having people join the chat via a link if that you can then remove them from the group if need be. And only you can invite new group chat members, it control whether invite-by-link is enabled.
