The convenience of instant messengers
Hangouts refer to messengers -- these are programs that allow you to exchange text messages, audio, and video calls over the Internet. Messengers do not require a lot of memory on your phone. They also place notifications about new messages in the background on the lock screen. They work well with mobile Internet, Wi-Fi connection and aren't demanding Internet speed at all.
However, they don't work without an Internet connection, and the recipient must also have Internet access, and the message won't be delivered without the Internet. Messengers are similar to mobile communication but have significant advantages over it. After all, most people have constant access to the Internet, and you could use messengers to communicate for free.
