Google Has officially Replaced Google Talk with Hangouts

Google has finally killed off its Google Talk service and has replaced it with Hangouts, as promised in MarchGoogle said: “Hangouts offers advanced improvements over Google Talk such as group video calling and integration with other Google products. With the introduction of Hangouts Meet and Hangouts Chat, which add further improvements in meetings and team collaboration, it is now time to say goodbye to Google Talk”.

 Gtalk was started in 2005 and the beginning of the end started from 2013. When it was launched, Google introduced it as a simple chat experience for Gmail service users. Hangouts, meanwhile, is now being used by Google as a business application, now that the company has several new messaging services like Google Duo and Android Messages. Before this, Gmail users had the option of switching between Gtalk and Hangouts.




Despite stopping its services for Google Talk, the company still has an array of messaging services to offer including AlloDuo, Hangouts and Android Messages. But it now looks like Google wants to clearly define each of its messaging apps to serve different purposes. It also wants to push its Allo chat app and Duo video calling app as the the ones general users should choose over Hangouts.
Over the past few months, Google has improved Hangouts a lot. For instance, it does support group video calling and is tightly integrated into Google ecosystem. In March, Google announced that it would split Hangouts into two products: Hangouts Meet and Hangouts Chat. Hangouts Meet would focus on video conferences, while Hangouts Chat would be focused on instant messaging.
