I want something that provides a hangouts tray icon (in MacOS) that will notify me of messages.
Sounds simple, but there seems no way to do this... The latest Hangouts is only a Chrome plugin. The last "desktop app" from Google was discontinued and had several issues.
There are "multi-IM" apps like Pidgin but these are not secure and you need to enable the "old apps" option in your Google account.
Anyone know of an alternative?
