See attached. 

Received two such notifications for Hangouts on my Android 7.0 phone, for the first time this morning, running latest Hangouts version. 
 
Has anyone else encountered this ? 
Is this a security bug in Hangouts ? 

The notifications are entitled "FCM Messages" with content "Test Notification!!!!".
The excessive exclamation marks especially suggest illegitimate source ... 


Uninstalled the app for now just in case.

I got the same thing multiple times today. No clue what it's about but the multiple exclamation points are how scammers write, and it seems strange...
