Google will push Hangouts users to Chat in 2021

Google Hangouts transition to Google Chat

Google will let everyone migrate from Hangouts to Chat for free in 2021

"In addition, Chat features the same strong phishing protections we built in Gmail, so if a link is sent to you via Chat, it will be checked against real-time data from Safe Browsing and flagged if it's found to be malicious", explained Google. Free Google Chat users will also be able to share and collaborate on files and assign tasks.

Ever since Google announced back in 2017 that Hangouts would be split into the Chat and Meet apps, consumers have been curious about when to expect major changes. The new messaging app will also have the same tool as Gmail.

The transition, however, will be gradual and both Hangouts and Chat will be available for a while, reports The Verge, citing additional details that Google has shared with the publication.

Mandatory upgrade (late 2021): All remaining customers will be migrated to Chat Preferred, and we will fully replace classic Hangouts with Chat. There shall be no choice to decide out at this stage. Prior to now, the 2 have performed carefully collectively, offering Fi customers with SMS, telephone name, and voicemail entry inside Hangouts.
