How can I complete disable Hangouts in my Google account?
I want to close Hangouts, without disabling my entire Google account. I don't want anyone to be able to message me. If anyone tries to message me, I want them to receive some sort of message saying that I don't have Hangouts enabled.
Is there a way to do this?
I don't want to just uninstall Hangouts on my device, because that might not be enough for my contacts to realise that I am not on Hangouts, I want my contacts to know that I have disabled Hangouts.
