And with your preaching, as with you nonsense!
Hello, 2017 my beard partner!

Help get our Hangout Apps back!

If you've ever tried a Hangout on a personal account vs. a work/education account, you can see that all the apps we used to enjoy have been removed. With the recent announcement of the Hangout API being shut down, apps that give us functionality like the lower thirds will likely go away.

So, what can YOU do? Say something.

Using the feedback tool for hangouts, we can let Google know what we want to see in Hangouts. Allo and Duo are Google's answer to iMessages, but it currently only works on mobile devices.

So, what should we say? Well, here's a message that you can quickly copy/paste into the feedback windows for Hangouts:

Functions I'd like to see in Google Hangouts:

1. Lower thirds. Whether in a private video call or a Hangout on Air, the ability to easily see the name of the person speaking is extremely imporant.

2. Soft focus background. Great for busy backgrounds, this allows for a sharp focus on the speaker while everything around was out of focus.

3. Bring back/keep Google Effects. Many people don't like using video conferencing because they can see themselves on screen. However, wearing a silly hat goes a long way to breaking down their reluctance.

Where to find feedback:

New Hangouts: Select Feedback from the menu (three dots in top right)
Old Hangouts: Question mark in the bottom left corner
