Google had announced the end of Google Hangouts during the year 2020.
Two years later, it’s now done. Indeed, Google’s messaging service is no longer functional as some Android and iOS users point out.
Moreover, since 2021, Google has been offering Hangouts users to migrate to Google Chat. It should be noted that in any case the old Google messaging service has not offered an update for a very long time and that it is no longer even offered on the application store for certain models of smartphones.
For those who are still using Hangouts, it now displays the following message: “Hangouts has been replaced by Google Chat. Your conversations and new features await in Chat in Gmail ”. Especially since Google indicates that “some conversations or parts of conversations do not automatically migrate from Hangouts to Chat”and that more information will be communicated by September 2022. Note that it will be possible to use Hangouts until October 2022 before its final extinction.
