  • (2022-07-18) Wayne Lin: My hangout extension was blocked by a full screen notification asking you to use google chat instead, but it seems like the extension still works normally in the background since I can still get the notifications of incoming messages. Is there anyway to bypass this full screen stuff? Seems like Google just got so lazy on this, and they just put a picture in front of your face...
  • (2022-07-14) Scott Gilliland: I'd love to sit down and have a conversation with the Devs who created Hangouts. I imagine they are wringing their hands in anger with what Google has done to their amazing platform. Oh well. At one point Hangouts could do Chat, SMS, MMS, Video, and Voice Calls. A perfectly unified chat platform. Google Chat can do chat...What a big step back.
  • (2022-07-14) Jackie BebeStL H: This Hangouts Extension was THE ONLY WAY that I could still access conversations with other Google Contacts! The Chrome Extension bypassed my Work Co's blocking software, so it was The Only Way I could still connect with other Gmail users on this laptop! Chat has NO POP OUT feature, which I HATE doing without!! I've moved to Chat on my personal computer, but on this work laptop, I will have to totally do without any outside communication app. FFS Google, listen to your users!
  • (2022-07-13) Ła Ka: Rozszerzenie przestało dziś działać. Nie można się zalogować. Pewnie to wina NIEZAPOWIEDZIANEGO przenoszenia do Google Chat, które nie ma swojego niezależnego rozszerzenia, czyli trzeba je trzymać w osobnej karcie. Kiedy będzie odpowiednik rozszerzenia dla nowej usługi?
  • (2022-07-13) Jeff “JD” Neely: All hope is not lost for long time hangouts users for desktop. I'm not sure about in the chrome browser, but microsoft edge has this feature called apps. What it does is that it turns certain web apps into actual apps used by edge. If you go to google web chat while using edge you will see a icon pop up next to the favorites star. If you click that it will ask if you want to install the google chat app. Install it and now you can open similar to how you would an app. And you can also tell it to start when your computer boots up as well. It's actually much better than the extension! I hope this helps people who miss the hangout extension!
  • (2022-07-13) Raymel Francisco: Come on Google, please launch a Google Chat extension first before discontinuing Hangouts. Having unread count embedded in the extension icon is very useful and should be retained.
  • (2022-07-13) Gianluca Passaro: Oggi purtroppo una schifezza unica la uso da anni ed è andata via via peggiorando.
  • (2022-07-11) Archie Hatanaka: DO NOT GET THIS EXTENSION! Nothing wrong with it, just the hangouts service has been discontinued, so this extension is obsolete.
  • (2022-07-07) FNU charvi: Decent
  • (2022-07-06) Kei: Android 版は、フォトからハングアウトへインテントでシェア出来、チャットへは出来ない、 Desktop 版は、使いにくい... 相変わらず、計算は出来ても UI/UX については、セミプロ以下だなと思う事が多いです。 良いアプリケーションから先に消えていくのは、非常に残念ですね。
  • (2022-07-06) saltlakedood: Dear people freaking out that the Hangouts extension which was so great and useful is going away. Like you I am highly distressed as I still used this quite often. I was forced to change to Chat. However in further research I have discovered that Google has provided a standalone window for Chat! It is not a browser extension, rather it is an app! You can install and set it up by following the directions here! https://support.google.com/chat/answer/9455386?hl=en It's pretty much the same as the Hangouts extension!
  • (2022-07-04) Phillip Chang: For Google Hangouts, this extension is 5 stars. But with Google Voice separation and then Chat forced migration, it is only 1 star. Why not just update this extension support Google Chat webpage? Instead, it says go to Google Chat, has a button that opens a tab in my browser. First Voice's text messages then, Google Chat, I have extra browser tabs instead of a nice, clean extension I can open/close effortlessly.
  • (2022-07-01) Fernando van Loenhout: Does not work anymore
  • (2022-07-01) Michal Zatloukal: I see that google is rolling out the Chat switchover gradually, as some accounts in the house can still use it via this same extension. Oh well, gone are the days of unobtrusive user interface, switching between conversations quickly, and overall a surprisingly good experience from the first party. Off to find a decent client to use libpurple-googlechat with.
  • (2022-06-29) Miaow Minx: While Google Hangouts isn't perfect (nothing is), it's the best option for just text-chatting & occasionally sending images to the person we're interacting with: it shows the users on opposite sides of the frame with different background colors to make it easy to distinguish between us at a glance, doesn't waste a ton of screen space with empty whitespace or "tools" we're not going to use, and functions as a separate browser extension that can run in the background without constantly needing its own window. In other words, it beats the heck out of janky Google Chat — once Hangouts is fully eliminated in favor of it, I'm just going to switch to another service like Telegram.
  • (2022-06-28) Dirty Derds: Why oh Why do I have to change to chats? Another dumb idea from google. Lets come out with something great and then abandon it. FFS Google
  • (2022-06-28) Mark van der Waarde: So long, Hangouts. It was great while it lasted. Don't worry, it wasn't you, it was them. I'll miss you.
  • (2022-06-27) Beth A: Loved it, but it officially no longer works - google is forcing me into chat instead. :(
  • (2022-06-13) Coot Master: would like a dark mode function
  • (2022-05-12) Robert Earl Johnson: I feel like the characters from the old 'Dick Tracy' comic strip. making phone / video calls from the convenience of a wrist watch. Hangouts Extension is the best choice for me.
  • (2022-05-05) Shonade Malik S_Malik- Roblox: A great and peaceful place to chat! I've been using it since June 2020 and I'll use it until it's taken down. I prefer it over Google Chat. Discord contains very dirty stuff, but I still have it since I have other people that I talk to there, too.
  • (2022-04-28) Casie Ropski: I think I used hangouts once. Years ago. And apparently, I downloaded this extension to do it. Now, out of nowhere, it would pop up literally ANY TIME I used chrome. I searched how to get rid of it and literally no one could tell me "just uninstall the extension" - every help guide had some story about signing out of hangouts (impossible without signing out of all google products I might add). It was sheer luck that I finally figured out it was this extension. Do yourself a favor and never download it.

  • (2022-03-17) Draco Malfoy: muq bazı yenilikler lazım
  • (2022-03-01) Marilynne Khor (Meetohsch): Haha, I'm a student and I love this app, it's really convenient because I can chat with my classmates and teachers. Don't really get notifications for my desktop though... I will only get them when I am on this account... Can't delete messages too but not really a problem.
  • (2022-02-25) Dimes: Still works for me and so I still use it. But since they are replacing hangouts, they really need a chat extension that works like this one. The current way to use the chat app is to go to the google chat URL, then 'install' the app for chat. But it doesn't work like this extension. It's a weird pop-out thing you need to open all the time and you have to go to the URL and pop it out every single time you log in. With this extension, as long as you're logged in to google, you can get hangouts messages. There is no need to go to the URL and open the app every time. Why they can't just do a google chat extension in the vein of the hangouts extension is beyond me. It says there's a 'Google Chat Standalone App' but nothing about it is a standalone app, you need the chrome browser to be open because its actually a progressive web application only. My point is, if they were going to limit the new 'app' so hard, they may as well just have made it an extension like this one. Boo to the new google chat.

  • (2021-12-12) Carrie Schneider: sucjks, cant remove it
  • (2021-12-08) AngryMongol: Too bad Google has decided to retire this extension without any replacements. It was probably one of my most used feature by Google, if not the most used. It was such a simple and convenient feature that was easily accessible without having to go look for. It has been over a year since it stopped working and is now time for me to uninstall it from chrome. Wish they had given us a way to download or transfer all the messages in there over to something else. Google has become not so different from Microsoft nowadays though

When I click the "sign in" button, a new blank window pops up at the following URL. https://hangouts.google.com/webchat/blank?pli=1#Email=(my gmail address.) Refreshing the blank window has no effect. Rebooting has no effect. Removing and reinstalling the extension has no effect.

  • (2022-08-06, v:2022.407.1237.1) Kate Super: I am begging this extension to LEAVE ME ALONE
    I removed the hangouts extension from google. I know I did since it gives me the option to add the extension back when I go to it in the chrome web store. Despite having removed it, it still somehow opens every single time I start my laptop up and tells me to uninstall the extension. I have indeed uninstalled the extension. I've spent a long time trying to figure out where it is still downloaded on my laptop--which is brand new, by the way, so I'm not sure why it was even downloaded on it in the first place--but I cannot find any sort of hangouts software. I am so very tired of it.

  • (2022-08-03, v:2022.407.1237.1) A Hobson-Marcello: So many problems-issues not sure where to begin.
    Since Hangouts switch over to Google Chat, I've had nothing but issues with using emails, and of course the dueling chat... Even though Hangouts supposedly is no longer used and the switch to Google Chat I am constantly getting duplicate messages/notifications and the annoying sound alert from both the Hangouts and Google Chat... When I go to open a message from the Hangouts notification it tells me to view the message to go to Google Chat; okay whatever, so I go to Google Chat to view. However, I am still receiving duplicate messages and notification sound alerts. I have removed/uninstalled the Hangouts app from my phone but unable to locate the option to shut it off or disconnect from my computer... To make matters worse, I use Gmail for work correspondence and the new Google Chat is causing major technical issues, from Google Chat constantly not responding, trying to reconnect, at times causing my computer to run high, screen freezing up and when I am in the middle of composing an email the chat will start with "Not Connected" , "Trying to Reconnect" , "Try Re-connecting Now" pop-up messages and my screen will sometimes refresh its self on its own or the browser will randomly close/crash and the email I was in the middle of composing is gone... This is definitely a Google technical issue and not a computer problem, because while the Google browser is trying to figure out what it’s doing or correct the issue, I am able to continue with whatever else I have open on my screen and not in the browser. The new Google Chat has been a problem since the day of being forced in to the new (revised/updated) model. Not sure why Hangouts was discontinued with this when Hangouts worked well and never really had any problems with it. Google Chat appears to be very buggy and problematic. PLEASE FIX THE ISSUE or better yet, bring back Hangouts and remove Google Chat.
