Want to chat on your Hangouts at the shell? That is exactly what Hangups is for! It worked perfectly well for me. It would even convert my text emoticons to Unicode emojis!

To install:

$ sudo pip3 install hangups

To run: hangups

By default, it shows notifications using your desktop notification popups. If you do not want such notifications: hangups -n
