Yes, because Hangouts is using TLS.

Thank you. So to clarify, Hangouts uses TLS technology, which encrypts both calls and text messages via Hangouts?

Please explain exactly what is your concern, under what circumstances.

Text messaging within Hangouts is no longer supported, so that question is moot.

Again, my precise and exact concern is whether calls and text messages are encrypted by TLS or other encryption protocol when using Google Voice via Google Hangouts - in all circumstances.

I text message every single day specifically and exclusively using Google Hangouts alone. Therefore, I respectfully submit the question is far from moot. I appreciate your time, and also respectfully ask for escalated support if you do not have specific answers to my specific question.

Google Hangouts for consumer use is going away.  It is time to switch to using Google Voice for all calling and SMS/MMS use.
 
Google Voice uses TLS encryption for everything.  However, you should understand that once a SMS/MMS message leaves Google Voice's text messaging gateway, it's hopping around the unencrypted worldwide SMS network.  So actually, there is no such thing as end-to-end encrypted SMS.
 
If you need a truly end-to-end encryption solution, then don't use SMS.

Thank you for the information.

How long before Google Hangouts becomes unavailable for consumer use?

To clarify, there is no end-to-end SMS encryption service available anywhere, even on third-party bases?
