2. Using Tool:

Grabify is one of the most popular online tools to track someone’s location on Hangouts. Using this tool, you can create a link that contains the tracking feature attached to it, and by giving this link to any person, you can track down their Hangouts location. 

Step 1: Open on Chrome and Shorten Link

To create a link, open your Chrome browser, go to the Grabify webpage, and enter your chosen URL in the particular field in the given box. There are two options: ‘Create URL’ and ‘Tracking Code’. Tap ‘Create URL’, and they will give you a shortened URL with a tracking code which you need further, so save this.


You have to create a link that the person must click. So the link you have chosen has to be something interesting like a meme, youtube videos link, or any social media links on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, and convert them to a Grabify link. 


Step 2: Send the Shortened Link to Hangouts Chat

Now is the time to share this link with the person, so first, go to Hangouts, sign in to your account, and start chatting with someone. First, start normal chatting with him to gain some trust by sending some original YouTube meme video links and receiving some links from the other side; if you send the link to him at the very beginning, he may not click on the link. After that, send him the shortened URL you have created, which will increase the chance that the person has clicked on the link.
