So far, I continue to be able to use "Google Chat" from most Jabber/XMPP
clients, but only basic chat. The audio/video features have been removed
from "Google Chat". Given Google's history, I would expect Google Chat to
shutdown completely sometime relatively soon.
On my PC, with the Google Hangouts plug-in for FireFox installed, I can
still access a/v from Google Chat, so maybe Jitsi could somehow use the
browser plug-in to "connect" to Google Hangouts. On my Android device,
there seems to be no such plug-in for FireFox or any other web browser.
But, so far, I can still use non-Google Jabber/XMPP clients for basic chat.

After introducing "Hangout" Google dropped support for xmpp/jabber, at
least usage with audio/video from Jitsi using Gtalk is problematic,
probably chatting is more and more affected also (I have stopped using
GTalk with Jitsi longer time ago, switched to jit.si and jabber.ccc.de
and convinced my former Gtalk buddies to do the same...so I cannot report
here for current issues with Gtalk using Jitsi..)
