Does your Google Talk look a little different?

That’s because it’s not Google Talk anymore! Google announced they are phasing out Google Talk and replacing it with Google Hangouts.

So, we updated to Google Hangouts on Tuesday 30 May. Yes, that’s right. You’ve actually been using Google Hangouts for just over a week.

Here’s what’s changed:

  • Your Chat interface is now a Hangout session
  • Some of your existing chat contact list may be deleted, however contacts will re-populate in Hangouts when you start a new chat with someone.
  • Status availability has also been modified to allow you to share your status by typing a message (i.e. In a meeting or Currently on leave).

So, next time you want to chat, lets Hangout instead!
