You may have noticed that on July 1 there will be an update to the Chat software we user through Google. There is nothing we need to do to receive this update unless you need to copy any group messages from Classic Hangouts to Chat.
- Your chat history for direct messages to an individual in Hangouts will be migrated to Google Chat.
- Group messages from Hangouts (including their history) will not be copied to Google Chat.
- Possible Action Needed – if you have important group messages in Classic Hangouts, just copy and paste your group messages into a shared document for your records.
