Just an advice: Do NOT allow Google Docs permission to your account

Unless you already are aware, there is an ongoing, rather clever, phishing scam where you might receive a mail from a known source (that is already infected) requesting you to open a Google Doc, when doing so Google Docs will ask for permissions to manage your account ... DO NOT ALLOW IT, it will use those permission to spread itself and potentially steal your credentials.

I'm Moving Away from (certain) Google Products

I never thought this day would come.

I'm not a Google-fan-boy per say, rather a cool-and-open-tech-fan-boy and that is what google have been for me, so for the many last years, Google has been the best choice for me in most things. I have been moving in the direction of trying to standardize and organize my life around Google products to get an as integrated and easy to manage platform as possible for me, my family, and friends. I have my own Google domain (G-suite) where we have shared calendars, e-mails, etc. I've been the biggest advocate for people moving to Hangouts for messaging and Video / Voice as that suited our needs best and it's nice when you have the people you do daily conversations with on the same platform. I abandoned Spotify for Google Music as soon as it was available in Sweden, etc, etc, moving towards Google products all the way as that made most sense for me.

That does not seem to be the case anymore.

I think many people agree with me that Google has messed up their IM/Messaging strategy the last few years, firstly bringing functionality into Google Talk making it become Hangouts. That I was very positive about. It was great to have one app alone to go to for Voice (both Google voice and direct Hangouts calls) and Video conversations, messaging where you could actually have the SMS texts in the same conversation/thread as your Hangouts messages (I really, really miss that). Hangouts became the center of most of my instant communications with my family and also some friends that moved in the same direction.

The last year or so Google has messed that up for me, firstly by removing the ability to join SMS and Hangouts messages into the same conversations / threads (once again: I really really miss that functionality). That alone made me start looking for alternatives. Then by promoting Allo as their primary messaging platform for private use ... which so far seem to have miserably failed ... I do not know one single person actually using Allo for conversations with other people and Duo for Video (same thing there). Great move Google * NOT * ... going down that line (even given that all my friends and family also did so) I would need to have at least 4 different apps for my conversations ... Allo for IM, Android Messages for SMS Text, Duo for Video, Hangouts / Google Voice for Voice (haven't found any other Google app that handles Voice only).

Now it actually looks like they are doing some nice stuff with Hangouts, making it more like Slack, which is a great communication and collaboration product for groups (if everybody in the group is on it), but they are stripping it of all the functionality that made me chose it in the first place.

So, from now on I will move all my private conversations to (FB) Messenger
(at work we, even if we also there are a Google shop using G-suit, are on Slack already, and I cannot see us moving away from that).
(FB) Messenger is an app that most of my friends/family already have installed. It can handle Voice and Video conversations, it can handle SMS Text (even though it also cannot join Messenger and SMS messages in single conversations/threads * sob * ).

Sorry Google, Hangouts is a goner for me.

.... and on top of that Google can't even give a date on when they are releasing family subscriptions for google Music in Sweden ... so this week I also canceled my Google Music subscription and switched back (the entire family) from Google Music to Spotify...

What is happening Google? Why are you scaring me off?

Let's put the foot down and show that we don't accept hatred, intolerance and discrimination to be promoted in the EU Parliament.
