    The Facebook messenger integration in the sidebar is great!

    Maybe add Hangouts also, as me and my friends use it a lot.

    Can't wait to see the new reborn interface in the Stable channel.

      I agree!

      Skype would be a nice addition too.

      There is an extensions sidebar and a sidebar. It would be cool if you could combine the two - so already working extensions will work to.

        100% agree. Being able to have my most used messaging platforms on my sidebar is already awesome. This would just move me closer to not having to use anything other than Opera when browsing.

          What about WeChat/QQ, the second most popular social app in the world? Barbaric! It should be all or nothing.

          Open a new topic to suggest it as this one is to ask for Hangouts only.

            Hangout extension is a must.

              Are hangouts the same as doorhangers? Why does messaging have to be built in? Could there not be extensions for that?

                Agree with original poster. Hangouts on the sidebar would complete Opera for me. Hangouts is the only reason why I still have Chrome on my PC.

                I don't understand why is not implemented yet, even being Google the default search engine...
                Don't know if Telegram has more users than Google HangOuts...

                    I agree with OP! I know people who don't have facebook (including me) but don't know anyone who doesn't have gmail, just everyone have it, that is a power of this IM! Gmail/Hangout is major IM with my friends and amazing integration on android devices (light, low battery usage). But support for desktops especially linux users is disaster, hangout's web site even don't have mobile version and not even mention about APM standard which google is trying to promote (shame!). That is probably why Opera is not adding Hangout because Telegram, Whatsup and FB Messenger is based on mobile version of website and Hangout doesn't have one. I have to use Hangout as pinned tabsheet, the problem is that even website icon is not changing on new message. Beside that, in April, google closed public hangout API for third party apps. Shame you google, shame... Underestimation of Hangout potential. I hope that such player like Opera Software can force something on google corporation

                      I don't own any of messengers that are now in opera, so it would be great that in sidebar were other messengers like hangouts

                        I agree, it would be quite practical, much better then the chrome app actually, which opens a new window, and very neat since I personally know many more people using hangouts rather than telegram

                          I think this is issue and other messenger apps issues are resolved when we get the rumored upcoming OneSidebar update... hmmm.
