Just a day ago, Google officially confirmed that the Hangouts Meet name will be phased out and will be rebranded to Google Meet. This left Hangouts Chat as the last remnant of the ill-fated Hangouts lineup. That is about to change soon as well.

The official GSuite admin support page repeatedly mentions Google Chat instead of Hangouts Chat. The change makes it clear that the Google Chat name will soon replace Hangouts Chat in Google’s product portfolio.

Additionally, Google has also filed an application before the USPTO for trademarking the name Google Chat. The filing clearly defines Google Chat as an instant messaging software that can be downloaded to exchange data, video and graphics. Sounds very much like a chat platform, eh?

I’ve been writing about consumer technology for over three years now, having worked with names such as NDTV and Beebom in the past. Aside from covering the latest news, I’ve reviewed my fair share of devices ranging from smartphones and laptops to smart home devices. I also have interviewed tech execs and appeared as a host in YouTube videos talking about the latest and greatest gadgets out there.
