Hangouts Will Not Be Shutting Down Anytime Soon, Confirms Google

Google has confirmed that it will not be shutting down its messaging app, Hangouts. Few days back, 9to5Google, a news site, had said that the search giant would be shutting down the Hangouts by 2020.

Google’s Real Time Communication product lead for G Suite – including Hangouts Meet and Chat, and Google Voice – Scott Johnston took to the Twitter to clarify his company’s stand and dispel the rumours. According to the tweet, Johnston said that Google has made no decision to shut down Hangouts. Instead Hangouts users will be transitioned to Hangouts Chat and Hangouts Meet, enterprise focussed products that are expected to fill different needs.

Scott also added that as a result of Hangout user migration, the Hangouts classic would eventually shutdown but the company would continue to support the “use case supported by the product: messaging and meetings”. – Business Today
