Starting from today the Google Hangouts panel in my Gmail tells me that I should join Google+ to use Hangouts. Is there a way to revert the plugin to the old Google Talk plugin in Gmail?

(Please note that the plugin is completely useless this way, showing me only that message, therefore I can't really use it to turn it back.)

EDIT: screenshot (sorry that I couldn't make it to be English)

plugin spam error whatever

The following worked for me:

  1. Click the join button
  2. Click the cancel button on the next screen
  3. The "Revert to old Chat" option should now be available

From Hangouts in Gmail - Hangouts Help

Turn off Hangouts and use Google Chat

You can go back to using Google Chat at any time.

  1. Open Hangouts in Gmail.
  2. Click your name.
  3. Click Revert to old Chat.
  4. Gmail will refresh, and you can start using Google Chat.

Okay, here's what you need to do from that point forward if you don't know already:

  1. Click on your name in the Hangouts box:
  2. Click "Revert to old chat"

There you go. I tried to put in pics, but I had trouble doing it, so sorry for that.
