Rumor claims Google Hangouts will shut down in 2020

It looks as though Hangouts will join a growing list of Google chat products to bite the dust. The site noted Google's announcement a year ago of a shift to an enterprise focus with G Suite's Hangouts Chat and Hangouts Meet as an early sign that such a decision was forthcoming. While the original google Hangouts Web and Android apps remained functional, they received few updates besides big fices, and it was only a matter of time till the firm killed it off for real.

A report by 9to5Google suggests that Google plans to shut down the consumer version of Google Hangouts in 2020.
