Are Google Hangouts and Google Chat the same thing?
Originally born out of Hangouts, Hangouts Chat and Hangouts Meet have now been rebranded as Google Chat and Google Meet, and are coming full circle to replace Hangouts for consumers as well as companies. If you think this sounds confusing, welcome to Googles messaging app strategy over the last few years.
Why cant I see Hangouts in Gmail?
I just figured it out! In Gmail settings, go to the Advanced tab. There is an option to enable right-side Chat, which says it moves the chat to the right side, which isnt really what I wanted, but enabling it makes the text chat and contacts show up again... on the right side.
