The documentation says ten people can be in a Hangout but I’m hearing that Hangout video maxes out at six people.
Which is correct?
You can use Hangouts to talk with more than one person at the same time.
- Conversations can include up to 150 people.
- Video calls can include up to 10 (Gmail, G Suite Basic) or 25 (Business, Education) people.
Everyone who wants to join a group conversation must use Hangouts.
For the desktop environment:
Specifications for sending and receiving messages
You can have a group Hangout with up to 100 people.
Requirements and specifications for video calls
Video calls can have a maximum of 10 participants. In general:
Sometimes you want to have a Hangout with multiple people at once, like when you’re planning a trip with several friends or choosing a convenient meeting time. With Hangouts, you can have a discussion with up to 100 people and have a video call with up to 10 people. Also:
Hangouts video calls are limited to 10 video conference participants, with no time limit. You can also use Hangouts On Air to broadcast a Hangout to many more people, though there is still a limit of 10 active participants.
If you activate Google+ premium features, the limit increases to 15 participants for both Hangouts video calls and Hangouts On Air. The limit remains at 10, however, for Hangouts created from the Google+ Events page.
