Google Hangouts wasn’t critically acclaimed as it should likely have been, and as Google’s messaging messaging continues, the service is planned to divide into other products ultimately. Hangouts as we know they’re on their death bed, but apparently that doesn’t stop Google from rolling out a fresh reporting function for users.
Hangouts gets this fresh user reporting function on the internet (via Android Police) in detail on a Google support article. Hangouts has permitted users who abused the service to be blocked for a long time now, most often those with spam accounts. That conduct was not revealed for further intervention to Google, however.
Now, if someone takes advantage of Hangouts in a poor manner, this user reporting option will offer Google a head up. Google will also offer you the choice to report the user concerned to the business when you go to block someone, with a transcript of the last 10 emails sent in that discussion.
It’s more than strange to see Google at this stage in 2019 bringing fresh function to Hangouts. Previously, the business announced it would shut down Hangouts ‘ present consumer version while transitioning customers to the new business-focused messaging option, Hangouts Chat. As far as Google has said, that’s still the platform’s plan, but maybe a fresh function like this indicates it’s going to stick a little longer. On that front we’re going to have to wait and see, but I’m not going to get my hopes up.
