About Google Hangouts
In 2006, Google integrated Google Talk into Gmail to provide a messaging service. With the launch of the social network Google+, a new message service was introduced, Google+ Messenger. Simultaneously Hangouts was announced, a video chat service that was also integrated into Google+.
These various services caused a fragmentation that users were not used by Google. The company also ran a decent backlog with instant messaging via mobile devices. In 2011, Google had started writing a completely new IM application, named “Babel”. On the I/O conference, however, the platform was presented as Hangouts.
