Interestingly enough, a product hasn’t damaged divided from a Google domain yet. It doesn’t even possess Hangouts.com. Domain names aren’t a clever fit of Google.

Yes, this is also partial of a violation divided that Google+ services are going through, fasten a Photos product in all of a “standalone” glory. we use Hangouts in Gmail on a desktop, though we competence switch over. Having a large aged call symbol is indeed kind of handy.
