The Q Bot (or 'queue bot') is a tool that supports meeting chairs in managing a meeting in Google+ Hangout chats by maintaining a speaker queue. The functionality and interface has been inspired by W3C's Zakim bot.
To activate Q Bot, a single
q followed by one of the following terms must occur on the chat:
+ ... add user who types the command to the end of the speaker queue - ... remove user who types the command from the speaker queue ? ... show the speaker queue
So for example, three people, Jim, John and Mary (meeting chair) would go like:
Jim: q+ Q Bot: I see Jim wants to speak, adding him to the queue John: q+ Q Bot: I see John wants to speak, adding him to the queue Mary: q? Q Bot: I see two people on the queue: Jim, John ... [Jim says something very important] Jim: q- Mary: q? Q Bot: I see John on the queue
