Google earlier this year announced that it would discontinue its Hangouts platform and replace it with Google Chat as its default chat application.
While some users may have already switched to Chat, Google has stated that those who have yet to migrate should do so by November 1.
Hangouts will be available only on the web until November 2, when users will be automatically redirected to Chat.
According to Google, some conversations or portions of conversations will not transfer from Hangouts to Chat on their own as part of the migration.
Users who want to keep a copy of their conversations can do so before January 1, 2023, when all data on Hangouts will be deleted, according to the company.
