Purple Hangouts is a libpurple plugin which adds support for the proprietary protocol that Google uses for its Hangouts service. Using it, you can get extra Google Hangouts features that aren't available through the XMPP interface in Pidgin and other applications that use libpurple. Among the extra features (compared to using XMPP) provided by Purple Hangouts are group chats, self messages, synchronized history between devices and SMS support via Google Voice.
