Google may pull the plug on Hangouts in 2020
 

 
image

Google is no stranger to k!lling off services, and it seems that one of its next victims could be Hangouts.

Having split the chat tool into corporate-focused Hangouts Chat and Hangouts Meet, sources familiar with Google's plans say that the company is due to shut down the consumer version of Hangouts in 2020. The writing has been on the wall for a little while, but now the clock really is ticking...

The news of Hangouts impending closure comes courtesy of 9to5Google which cites a source "familiar with the product’s internal roadmap". If the report is correct, 2019 will be the last year in which consumers are able to use Google Hangouts -- but Google already has chat alternatives available.

Android Messages is now what the company would prefer consumers to use, but given Google's history of launching and closing chat tools (remember Allo?) users would be forgiven for wondering just how long this tool may last.

At the moment, Google seems to be betting big on RCS (Rich Communication Service) but it remains to be seen how many people are ready to place their complete trust in Android Messages. If you are a Hangouts user, you have a year and a bit to enjoy the service. But it might be worth taking AndroidPolice's advice and grabbing your Hangouts data as a backup while you still can

What does sending full-sized gifs through iMessage or Hangouts have to do with this rumor? I have no clue who you are but you don't seem very bright.

Hangouts was the sh*t when me and all my friends would be at our jobs all day. Couldnt keep on your phone texting so just had to have that extra window in the back on your work screen. I remember once my boss came over and told me something bout work and sat on my desk, my messages were going nuts blinking. My boy was goin on bout some girl he smashed after the club the night before. My boss walked away just smiling lol

Just a heads up, that integration feature if not reliable. I sent tons of messages that did not make it to the recipient, and also never received messages. Both Google Voice and Google Hangouts. I recently got rid of both, sucks that's it's unreliable because that integration felt godly.

You can text and make calls inside the Google Voice app. Been that way for a minute.

I think his point is, a lot of people like having Voice and Fi integrated into Hangouts, all conversations in one place as they also utilize Hangouts.

And that's why Google integrated most of those features (such as in-app calling) into the revamped Google Voice app this year. Voice now has those features available if Hangouts does go away.

You're stating obvious facts, you're still missing the point.
Dude didn't say I HOPE NOT BECAUSE WHAT WILL I DO TO MAKE TEXTS AND CALLS.
He was saying, I HOPE NOT BECAUSE THE CURRENT INTEGRATION IS VERY Convenient AS I USE HANGOUTS

I'm not missing the point fool. You're missing the point and trying to create an argument.

The obvious point is, since you're struggling with comprehension, is he'll at least have some of the current features carry over from Hangouts into Google Voice. Previously, you couldn't make calls from the Voice app. Now you can. So while he loses Hangouts messaging, at least he will still having calling and texting.
