    Hangouts vs Telegram opinions
    This alternative is disputed. Hangouts is still a legitimate alternative to Telegram, but it might have issues that some users think are important.

    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).
