Finding old photos in Hangouts can be a bit difficult since the platform is constantly being updated, so your best bet is to use Google’s search feature. By opening up Hangouts on your device, select the search icon, then type in the name or keyword of whatever it is you are trying to find.

Google will surface the closest matches to your search term, making it easier to locate old photos. You can also use the dropdown filter on the right-hand side of the search bar to narrow down the results to photos only.

For instance, you can filter for images taken in a certain time frame, images taken at a certain location, or only images that you’ve shared in the past. Additionally, there is an “Advanced search” option that you can use to further refine your search.

This option allows you to filter your photos by the type of media, the type of chat, or the participants in the chat, making it even easier to find your old photos.

Can anyone see my pictures on Google?

No, unless you have shared the pictures on a publicly accessible website or uploaded them to Google’s photo storage site, no one will be able to see them on Google. Google does not have access to your personal computer, so any files kept on the hard drive will not be seen by Google.

The only way to ensure that your photos are seen on Google is to share them online. You can share them with specific people using a private file sharing service or publicly upload them on a website or image hosting service.

Additionally, you can upload them to Google’s photo storage site called Google Photos, which allows you to share the photos and videos with your friends and family.

Does Google Photos Archive delete?

No, Google Photos Archive does not delete photos that have been archived. When you move photos to the Archive, they are not altered in any way – they are simply moved to a different space in your library.

How do I permanently delete Hangouts messages on both sides?

In order to permanently delete Hangouts messages on both sides, you need to go into the Hangouts section of Google Settings on both sender and receiver devices. Once there you should select the conversation that you would like to delete and click the options button at the top of the Hangouts tab.

Is it safe to send pictures on Hangouts?

Yes, it is generally considered safe to send pictures on Hangouts. Hangouts encrypts the messages you send in order to protect your privacy and safety. However, it is important to remember that even though the information you send through Hangouts is encrypted, it’s still possible for someone to access it if they have your Google account password.

It’s also possible for someone to access your messages if Hangouts is not secure – for example, if you’re using an unsecured connection such as public wi-fi. Therefore, it’s important to make sure the connection you’re using is secure before sending any personal information.

Additionally, it’s a good idea to be aware of who you’re sharing information with and to never share personal details with someone you don’t know or trust.

Where are Hangouts photos stored?

Why can’t I see images on Hangouts?

When you archive a chat does the other person know?

No, when you archive a chat, the other person will not know. Archiving a chat only removes it from view in your chat list, but it doesn’t delete the conversation entirely or notify the other person in any way.

The chat will still be visible and accessible to both parties if either person opens the chat, and all messages will remain intact.

Where do archived Google Hangout conversations go?

All archived Google Hangout conversations are stored in the user’s Gmail account. When a user archives a conversation, the chat will appear in the Chats folder in Gmail. Any attachments that may have been shared during the conversation will be listed in the email, and will be accessible to download.

All images sent in a Hangout chat will be saved in the user’s Google Photos account.

If the user has chosen to add participants to the conversation, all archived chat transcripts are stored in the Google Drive folder of each individual participant. The folder will be titled “Google Hangouts” and can be accessed at any time by opening the participants’ Google Drive account.

In addition, users also have the option to export the conversation as a PDF file, or download it as a Google Takeout file. Doing so will preserve the conversation in its entirety, allowing the user to keep a copy of the conversation offline.

What does archived conversations mean?

Archived conversations refer to conversations (typically via text or chat) that have been marked as “archived”. This means that the conversation is no longer visible in the main chat screen, and is instead stored in a separate folder or section of the chat application.

This is often done when a user no longer wishes to receive notifications for a particular conversation, or when they want to keep the conversation visible but not at the top of their chat list. Archiving conversations can be helpful in keeping a chat application organized, while also allowing users to quickly access conversations they wish to revisit later.

Can I still receive messages from archived chats?

Yes, you can still receive messages from archived chats. When you archive a conversation, it removes it from your main conversation list, but the conversation is not deleted or blocked. This means you can still receive and see messages in the conversation that are sent by other participants, as well as send messages to the conversation.

To access an archived conversation, simply go to the Archive tab and select the conversation you want to view. You can then view the messages and participate in the conversation.

Can someone reply to an archived message?

Yes, it is possible to reply to an archived message depending on the platform or email client you are using. For example, in Gmail, you can open an archived message and click on the reply button at the bottom of the message.

The message will then open up as a normal message, allowing you to write your reply. However, if the sender or recipient have disabled their inbox, then the reply option may be grayed out or unavailable.

Additionally, if you are using an instant messenger or a different platform, you may need to first unarchive the message before you can reply.

Why do people archive chats?

People archive chats for a variety of reasons. One common reason is to keep track of conversations for future reference. Many messaging platforms allow users to easily save important chats, so that information can be quickly accessed again without having to scroll through an entire conversation.

This can be useful when trying to recall an important detail or conversation that you had previously.

Additionally, archiving chats can help to keep conversations organized, especially when messaging someone frequently. People may archive conversations that are no longer relevant, such as old job offers or customer orders, so that the current conversation is easier to follow.

Other people may choose to keep archives of their conversation with a friend, family member, or significant other, so they can look back fondly in the future at the relationship they had.

Archiving chats can also be a way for people to protect their conversations from being accidentally deleted or lost. Even with the most reliable messaging apps, there may be a chance of losing messages during an update or when switching devices.

Consequently, archiving chats can provide an extra layer of security for important conversations.

How do I know if someone has archived me on Messenger?

Unfortunately, it is impossible to know whether someone has archived you on Messenger. Messenger does not provide a way for a user to be able to see this information. Furthermore, if someone has archived you, you will no longer see them in your conversation list and will also not be able to send any messages to them.

Your only option is to ask the person you think might have archived you directly.

Does archive mean delete?

No, ‘archive’ does not mean delete. Archiving refers to the process of storing or preserving material for long-term accessibility. This is often done for documents, audio/video recordings, photos, website data, emails, and other digital content.

By archiving something, it becomes easier to access in the future without taking up physical or digital space. On the other hand, ‘deleting’ typically means completely removing a file or piece of data from a storage device so that it can no longer be accessed or retrieved.

Therefore, while we may refer to ‘archiving’ certain materials, deleting and archiving are two very different processes, with different goals and results.
