Over the past 15 years, Google has introduced more than a dozen messaging services spanning text, voice, and video calling. Google keeps falling into the same cycle, Chat and text today, one that has repeated itself throughout the years. April 1st, Gmail launches in beta.

April Google adds chat to Google Docs. Already, we start to see the second part of the cycle, as Google starts to build out Hangouts into its other services. April Google Fi launches as Project Fi. Both are separate from Hangouts, muddying the waters once again. March Google announces Hangouts is being rebranded as Chat and text today Chat, with a new focus on enterprise use.
