Inviting People to Hangout 

While you can invite anyone you like to your Hangout, understand that theses invitees can also invite someone they choose. Therefore, if you are planning a business meeting, then it should be understood by all that no outside invites are permitted. Also, there is a limit to the number of people that can participate in a Hangout. That being 10. As ‘moderator’ you do have some controls:
