Google bids final good bye to GTalk, Hangouts takes over

siliconreview Google bids final good bye to GTalk, Hangouts takes over

Popular search giant Google has permanently shuts down its popular Google Talk service, most commonly regarded as GChat or GTalk. Earlier, related to this the tech giant had once announced that it would be moving all its Google Talk users to Google Hangouts and that’s how it would start reshuffling the process from 2013.

The giant ‘Google’ was offering both GTalk and Hangout options, but finally took decision to draw the curtain over Google Talk. However, the decision turns to be good as Hangouts now comes with enhanced improvements. A exit from GTalk’s simplicity and personal tone, Hangouts, offers suitability in the form of group chatting and video conferencing options.

The interaction would take place on the basis of a list of conversation rather than a contact list. Moreover, it allows the users to share photos to a group of people.

Google Talk was quite popular back in the days when people used to primarily depend upon their computers rather than smartphones. Launched in the year 2005, Google Talk is now been replaced by Hangouts available both on Android and iOS other than Chrome. Furthermore, it will amalgamate with other products from Google as well, counting its business suite of office apps.

However, some of the other popular products of Google are Google Duo and Google Allo, which are chiefly made for mobile and to offer a competition with the services like WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger and Telegram.
