With improved security features in this release, Mac and Windows users can download the improved Hangouts Chat desktop client for an additional method to access the Hangouts Chat service.
Previously, UNCG users could make use of Google Hangouts Chat by using Google’s Chrome browser and visiting chat.google.com.
Visit https://get.google.com/chat/ to download the new desktop version of Hangouts Chat.
After installation, users will need to authorize the desktop application during the sign-in process (UNCG users should enter their UNCG iSpartan account).
