GoogleTalks Shutting Down: Google has announced the closure of its instant messaging service Google Talk Hangouts. This information has been received by Android Police Report. This service was launched in 2005. GTalk was stalled for quite some time, and a few years back in 2017 users were advised to switch to Google Hangouts. But reports have been received that this messaging app was being accessed through third-party apps on services like Pidgim and Gajim, although now this service is being completely stopped from 16 June 2022.
