Google might soon call it a day for one of its communication platforms, Google Hangouts. According to various reports, the tech giant is planning to shut down the messaging platform by 2020.
In 2017 only, Google announced the revamp of Hangout where it split the service into Hangout Chat and Meet. The step is not surprising as the company has not released any major versions of Hangouts since then. The recent development comes as a final nail in the coffin for the platform which has existed for four years now.
Hangouts took over the vintage Google Talk(popularly known as GTalk) in the year 2015. GTalk was later shut in June last year.
