It doesn’t matter why the other person blocked you. When you get blocked on hangouts, it is certain that you will no longer communicate with them.

Google hangouts has been a favorite tool for communicating with workmates and friends. However, when they block you, what happens? That’s for Google to decide. Google owns and controls hangouts, meaning it dictates what happens when another person does not want to converse with you anymore. Google tells you what happened!

So I recently got blocked on Hangouts. It was hurtful. But what happened? When I tried to send a text a message to the one who blocked me, Google told me that I could not create a hangout with them.

The most surprising thing about Google’s response is that it was “due to organization policy settings for google Workspace users.” That was a general message. A very unclear one for that matter, in my opinion.

I wish google would have been more direct. I wish google could had told me I had been blocked. That would have been more straightforward.

Should we judge google? Or should we judge ourselves for being blocked?
