A new Google Hangouts Chrome extension experience

October 17, 2016

Last month Google announced that better group chat controls were available on Android, iOS, and the web in order to make it a simpler and more consistent experience joining group chats with your team. As Google continue to iterate and add in features that help users communicate in group chats, the new experience brings together multiple chat windows into one and makes it easier to see more chat content. In following this move towards consistency, on October 17, 2016, all users will be automatically updated to the new experience of the Google Hangouts Chrome extension.


In order to make this a smooth transition, we’re updating the Google Hangouts Help Center articles with the latest changes, nested in the Hangouts Chrome desktop app section.
