Automate Google Hangouts in Raspberry Pi?

Wed Oct 24, 2018 4:00 am

I am thinking of initiating a video call to a user using Google Hangouts when a button is pressed.

Is there any way to automate Google Hangouts video calling in RPi 3?

Have you tested that "manual Google Hangouts video calling" works ?

Yes, I've tested it out on the chromium browser at "hangouts.google.com" and it works
It is very laggy and delay about 5~10seconds

I was wondering if there is any method to use google hangouts without using the chromium browser version?
I mean like a google hangout console application for python/RPi?
I've look up on the internet and I found nothing related to google hangouts in RPi, except for using it in chromium browser.

I looked up this Google+ Hangouts API developer site: https://developers.google.com/+/hangouts/
It seems like the API is only for mobile apps, its not feasible to RPi i guess...?

I just need to know whether is it doable to implement and automate some sort of google hangout program out there to initiate video calls with a press of a physical button using the RPi. Thanks.
