For people in organizations that use Google Workspace, the migration from Hangouts to Google Chat begins Aug. 16—unless an administrator chooses to delay.
Google will begin to migrate organizations that use Chat in Google Workspace from “Chat and classic Hangouts” to “Chat preferred” starting Aug. 16, 2021.
Google is nearing the end of the migration from classic Hangouts to Google Chat for people who use Google Workspace. Starting Aug. 16, organizations with the Google Chat service setting of “Chat and classic Hangouts” will be updated to “Chat preferred.” This adjustment will happen automatically, with no action needed by a Google Workspace administrator. (If you’re a Workspace administrator, you may check and change your current settings at the Admin console | Apps | Google Workspace | Google Chat and Classic Hangouts | Service status.)
