Hangouts can now be enabled for domains using Google Apps Vault

“Customers using Google Apps Vault can now activate the new Hangouts in the Admin console. An amendment has been added in the Admin console that allows you to activate the new Hangouts on acceptance of the terms.”

“This amendment outlines the change in Vault functionality that will exist until we complete the roll out of full compatibility. You will still have eDiscovery and legal-hold capabilities for your on-the-record/history-on chats, but the retention-purge function will not be available.”

“To agree to the amendment, please log into the Admin console, go to Apps, click on Talk/Hangouts, go to Advanced Settings, and click “Enable Hangouts”.”

  1. You actually weren’t able to have vault and hangouts enabled previously (my understanding comes from Andrew Stillman among others). Essentially you may have had Talk and Vault or Postini and hangouts, but this is the first time you could have both in your domain. Let me know if that doesn’t make sense, though.

  5. Wait, what?  Reading this again it says that opting into this means that chat retention is not possible.  I would not advise doing this in K12 if you need legal discoverability on chats (even when deleted).  

    We leave chat enabled between students and teachers, so I don’t see how the loss of retention is acceptable.
