Google has postponed the shutdown of Google Hangouts for G-Suite users to users until June 2020. Earlier, Google announced that it will be transitioning classic Hangouts users in G-Suite domains to Hangouts Chat and Hangouts Meet.
It had set an Oct 2019 deadline for migration of G-suite customers from the classic Hanouts messging service to Hangouts Meet and Hangouts Chat, Google says. The company says that a definitive date will be announced later. The reason for the postponement, Google told the Verge, is that IT firms claim that people are very used to Hangouts. They’d like more time to migrate organizations from classic Hangouts to Hangouts Chat.
June 2020 is now the final transition date for those using classic Hangouts on G-Suite. G-Suite is Google‘s platform for enterprise customers, which competes with Microsoft Office.
