Google Hangouts going away

#1 Post by webfork » Sun Jan 27, 2019 9:34 am

I've been moving away from Google services for some time now and definitely not regretting that decision today: there is another program to add to the list of dead chat programs by major companies and one of a remarkably long list of dead Google projects (gcemetery.co): Google Hangouts is going away (ghacks.net), migrated into yet another (AndroidAuthority.com) Google chat service.

I was looking for something suggesting that Google's constant project shutdown was hurting it's brand, but this might be more interesting: the average Google project life is 4 years.
