Use The Force.

This summer, Gmail’s chat feature is hitting the chopping block. So now you’ll have to start switching over to Google Hangout for your virtual hangs.

Or you could always just migrate over to an older platform called spending time with your human friends in real life. It’s free, doesn’t require any downloads, won’t interfere with the cloud and will never get canned by a fickle tech company.

Also, might we suggest a few real life locations to hold some of these real world meetups? OK? OK!
