    No way. Building the next chat service is the #1 way to get promo at google.

      This. They’ll build and subsequently abandon their own new service.

    The battle for supremacy in enterprise collaboration and messaging will be won by the company that can best blend personal assistants and proprietary analytics, with a focus on business productivity.
    Google is so well positioned for that. Why not focus on that as a distinction and then build the rest around that?

    The functional overlap of Slack and Hangouts would also require some rationalization, which would likely be a challenge. Both vendors offer platforms that support APIs, third-party and custom integrations, and extensions into other vendor ecosystems, so decisions would have to be made about strategy and prioritization, as well as logical avenues for consolidations

      Hangouts is a terrible product and Google would be wise to kill it.

    Even if it does it will be too late because M$ already cornered the part of the market where it actually makes money
