asked in Hangouts General by
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  Now Microsoft has discontinued Skype support for (Samsung) Smart TVs and the app is no longer available (withdrawn by Samsung).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?

That means the Hangouts was suspended. Is anywhere in the text does it say "contact us"? If so, click on it to see what happens. Penalope

Okay, that is a good starter point for me. What happens when you open up hangouts.google.com? What browsers and devices have you tried? Does clearing cache and cookies help you? Penalope
