Learn about Hangouts data in Google Takeout

After July 19, 2023 (PST, GMT-7), Google Takeout no longer supports downloads of attachments sent from Hangouts. Any links to attachments sent to you will no longer work.

How to access your data in Google Chat

For most people, conversations are automatically migrated from Hangouts to Chat, so it’s easy to pick up where you left off. You can also search for those messages in Chat.

Brand Accounts in Hangouts

If you used Google Hangouts with a Brand Account, you can no longer use the Brand Account in Google Chat.

Learn about the additional functionality in Google Chat

Google Chat easily integrates across Google Workspace and provides a modern, feature-rich experience that includes:

Enhanced expression:

  • React to messages with emojis that feature skin-tone selections.
  • Respond with Smart Replies.
  • Format text with rich-text editing.
  • Tag specific people with @mentions.
  • Search for and share GIFs.

Better collaboration:

  • Edit Docs, Slides, or Sheets with side-by-side editing to make it easier to collaborate while you continue a conversation.
  • Use spaces, a dedicated place for topic-based collaboration.
  • Start a video meeting or call in Chat using Google Meet.


  • Google Chat supports blocking people across all services.
  • If you previously blocked people in Google Hangouts through a third-party product, such as an XMPP client, these block settings won't carry over to Google Chat.
  • If you previously blocked people through first-party Google settings, those block settings will carry over to Google Chat. Review your list of blocked people.
