As we all know, Google is a major search engine and is used for a plethora of purposes. Google strives to give its users an all round experience and therefore has its own mail services, social networking site and even a messaging forum. One of the most famous services of Google is Gtalk and it has gained its popularity due to the fact that it lets one to engage in a personal discussion with one of the contacts of his emails. You can easily talk to your friend, share files and images and even engage in group chat with the Gtalk chat services. Moreover it has various modes and you can easily set your visibility mode at invisibility or busy in order to avoid unwanted people from disturbing you. Due to all these services, Gtalk had gained immense popularity over the last decade. But recently Google had decided to discontinue the services of Gtalk and has introduced a new messaging application called Hangouts.

Features of Hangouts

Hangouts is a relatively new introduction from the part of Google and is still not very popular among the users who prefer to use Gtalk. But in the vent of discontinuation of services, one is literally forced to try out the new Hangouts. So let us have a look at the features that are being provided by hangouts-

  • You can even share videos from YouTube and also share bulk image files through Hangouts.

How can you still use Gtalk?

There are some Gtalk fervors out there who swear by Gtalk and are not willing to use any other new integrated applications. For those users out there, you can still use Gtalk but you cannot use it from Google. There are many third party applications which provide you the option of using GTalk through them. However, logging in from a third party application always has some security issues and hence you should be careful while using Gtalk from these apps.

However, Hangouts is a new application which provides many excellent features and should be thus given a chance.
