Hangout to remove SMS support on MAY 22

Sometime in the distant past, I could complete the greater part of my communication through Hangouts. Between its support for standard SMS, Google Voice, and typical Hangouts discussions, it was a staggeringly helpful apparatus. It even could even consolidation SMS and Hangouts discussions into a similar string, much like iMessage on the iPhone. 

Over the previous year or thereabouts, Google has been isolating all this usefulness into discrete apps. Google began requesting that SMS clients change to Messages, then evacuated blended discussions, lastly propelled another different Google Voice app. The company has additionally been attempting to move individuals off Hangouts itself, with its new Allo and Duo apps. 

Google is keeping on rolling out improvements to its Hangouts app and benefit. Late on Thursday, the company sent an email to its G Suite directors, advising them that SMS content messaging support for the Hangouts chat app will be expelled on May 22.

The email, as posted by Droid Life, included that Hangouts clients will see an in-app message, similar to the one appeared above, beginning on March 27 educating them of the arranged expulsion of SMS administrations. That message will guide clients to pick another default messaging app for their SMS writings. In the event that, for reasons unknown, they don’t have one as of now installed on their telephone, those clients will be made a request to go to the Google Play Store to download a SMS app. This change won’t influence Google Voice numbers, which will keep on being upheld in Hangouts.
