I need to disable the chat on my Google Drive’s shared documents, as I work with people around the world who need privacy. As I discovered, you have the chance to disable it in your own account, but I need to hide/disable for every user that shares my document. It's possible?

  • What type of Google accounts you and your collaborators are using? a) consumer accounts (free) b) Google Apps for Work accounts – Rubén Nov 6 '15 at 22:56

G Suite administrators can turn off chat inside Docs, Sheets, and Slides by turning off Google Hangouts. See Turn Hangouts on or off for users.
