My employer moved all of us to Google Apps. Hangouts is really useful to me, because it allows us to have one-on-one chats, a couple of chat rooms for departments and for specific topics and problems.

I've found some Google Talk apps like Talk.to, gChat and others, but the Windows Phone Store says "This app is no longer published".

Trying to find out more, I've read about Microsoft adding Google Talk integration to Outlook.com (link to article), but this appears to be only for chats and not hangouts doesn't seem to be the case for my phone.

Is there any way to use Google Hangouts on my Windows Phone 8.1 device?

There is no official Google Hangouts app and may never be due to Google's nearly non-existant support for Windows Phone.

There is an API for developer to use so it's possible, but as you've noticed, no real fully featured 3rd party apps for Hangouts exist (yet?).

There is also no way to use a web version of Hangouts in Internet Explorer on Windows Phone.


There is no official Google Hangouts app for Windows Phone.

You can use IM+ or Agent + ICQ apps. They are not official or fully functioned but still better than nothing.

See reddit thread for discussion.
