After Facebook Messenger, now Google Hangouts gets a dedicated website

Google has finally given Hangouts a dedicated website: hangouts.google.com. This means that you’ll no longer be required to open your Google+ or Gmail account if you want to access the messaging service.

As you can see in the screen-shot above, the web client contains a contact list on the left, and large buttons to make a video or a phone call as well as to send a message towards the center. The background wallpaper is randomly selected, and changes each time you visit the web page.

Google seems to be putting in a lot of effort into this product – just a few months ago, the Mountain View, California-based company gave Hangouts for mobile a major design overhaul that brought along Material Design.

For those who aren’t in the know, Facebook also launched a dedicated website for its Messenger service back in April this year.
