Google will put an end to Hangouts in November, as users move to the company’s Chat function

Google is parting ways with its Hangouts platform, which was made free for all users two years ago.

The company says it will give users a least a month before it starts shifting across to Chat.

“In July, people who use Hangouts in Gmail on the web will be upgraded to Chat in Gmail.”

Users will be able to edit Docs, Slides or Sheets through collaborative editing functions.

“People using Hangouts on mobile will see an in-app screen asking them to move to Chat in Gmail or the Chat app,” the company says.

Existing conversations will move to Google Chat. The company is also providing the option of using its Takeout service to download a copy of any existing data.

The company had previously signalled these changes in 2018.

Google Search Ads Soar While Social Media Stays Stable.

Ad costs on major platforms are shifting, with Google Search ads seeing a significant increase—13% year-over-year and 40-50% over the past 4-5 years. In contrast, Meta’s CPMs have remained stable, averaging $8-$11 since 2021, while TikTok’s CPMs have also stayed consistent, between $2.50-$4 post-COVID. The main story is Google’s rising costs, while social media channels remain stable. Businesses should diversify their ad spend, focusing more on cost-effective social platforms and optimizing their Google ads for better ROI to limit the impact of increased Search ad costs. #featured #trending
