      Hangouts vs Telegram
      pros, cons and recent comments

      JohnFastman Hangouts is not end-to-end encrypted. Google, who own it, make money by spying on users (every bit of info they can get) and selling it to advertisers. That's appalling. Telegram is not perfect but it is end-to-end encrypted, which means that only the intended recipient can read your messages - not the case with Hangouts. Google can see everything, and others can force them to give that info up (e.g. by subpoena).

      Hangouts lacks most of the administrative-type functionality that Telegram has.

      sadlyfatobguh Hangouts does not care about your privacy at all. Telegram is primarily marketed as a private communication service
