It was originally Chat/Talk then Voice, They migrated to 'Hangouts' and now migrating back/forward to a new 'Chat'. I can't make heads or tails of it all. But I saw THIS;

"Hangouts is losing a feature before it's retired
From early in 2021, Google plans to remove the "call phones" feature in Hangouts. There'll be notifications warning users of that deadline from this month, along with instructions on how to get a refund on any calling credits you might have in the app."

What are the implications going to be for Obi & Chat integrated in gmail? They gave me a prompt to switch, I did and hangouts doesn't work in my gmail now but Obi200 is still working.

There are absolutely no implications whatsoever for Google Voice on OBiTALK devices.

yes, in November, Google upgraded its group video calling experience with Google Meet to deliver quality meetings. I hope this change will not too bad
