asked in Hangouts General by Former Skype user
Would Google be interested in developing 'Hangouts' so it also can be used on  Smart TVs?

I am a very disappointed Skype user; I bought a Samsung Smart TV with Camera especially so we could make video calls with family overseas using Skype as advertised by Samsung.  Having Skype available on a smart TV enabled the family to gather around the sofa in the lounge room for all to be involved in the conversation at the same time.  We used Skype to talk with family overseas.  This is simply not the same or even possible when using Skype on a smartphone or tablet.  Now Microsoft has discontinued Skype support for (Samsung) Smart TVs and the app is no longer available (withdrawn by Samsung).

There are many disappointed Smart TV Skype users as you can read on this forum:  http://community.skype.com/t5/Skype-on-your-TV/Skype-on-Samsung-Smart-TV-Discontinued-2-June-2016/td-p/4320126/   There has been no further response from Microsoft regarding withdrawing Skype from Smart TVs although there are many disappointed users.

Since video calling is now no longer available for Smart TVs there is a need for a new app to fulfil this missing Smart TV function.  Would Google be interested in bringing video calling back to Smart TVs by developing 'Hangouts' so it also can be used on Smart TVs?

Is there a way on Hangouts to restrict privileges of members in a group, to prevent them from kicking other members? Also if you are kicked from a group that you created, is there a way to get back in?

I can upload from the Hangouts web page. Another user that uses the same device can upload pictures fine, I'm the only user that's having trouble as far as I know. Google Chrome browser version is Version 61.0.3163.123 (Official Build) (64-bit). I'm not sure what version of the Hangouts app I'm
