Google announced its 2021 plan for Hangouts users. Google will increase the efficiency in this area by directing users to Chat.
Google users will stay in touch more with Chat
For some time now, Google has stepped up its planning to shut down Hangouts. For this, new steps are taken for Hangouts users.
After Hangouts closes, Google aims for users to stay in touch with the message, just like Slack. For this, new steps are being taken for Google Chat, which has been released as a version of G Suite. By the first half of 2021, Google Chat will be available to users completely free of charge.
Google will also take steps towards the transition to Google Chat for Hangouts users. Hangouts data of users from contacts to recorded history will be transferred to Google Chat. Thus, users will be able to use the new vehicle without any loss. It is also said that Google Chat can be integrated with Gmail in the future.
