Google looks to be making a lot of changes in services so as to increase its functionality among the users. The search giant has recently thought about cutting down its chat-based applications. It has finally let go of its Google Talk service. The application has been killed and instead has been replaced with Hangouts. Google was planning of bringing about a change in Google Talk since last March and it has finally succeeded in doing so this year.
Many of the people are still using Google Talk, which can also be called as Gchat or GTalk. It was introduced by Google in 2005 as a Gmail chatting application. But as the time passed away, a number of other chatting applications was introduced, which took over GTalk. One of the trending apps is Google Allo. However, the people who are using Google Talk will be compelled to switch to Hangouts if they wish to continue messaging on Gmail. There is nothing to worry about as all the GTalk contacts will be shifted to Hangouts without any trouble. The moment one logs into Hangouts you will find all the contacts present in the contact list. Though the killing of GTalk may seem hurtful but it is all for advancing technology.
Speaking of GTalk being gone, there are a number of other chatting services from Google that can suit ones needs. The introduction of Hangouts eases Google’s operations and helps it focus on other applications as well. The new chatting application will have all the modern features, GIF support, chat bubbles, and ability to share files of certain MB. The company plans to streamline its various services for the betterment of the public.
Google also plans to shift from carrier SMS to Android messages instead. Google wants to make Hangouts a default chat for Gmail and also make it useful for the enterprise and G Suite users. What’s more interesting is that Google has rolled out Hangout’s Meet video conferencing service. Google plans to benefit the enterprise users.
Hangouts, a text-based messaging chat service, will have the public going gaga sooner or later.
