Google Hangouts is based on the Google Play Service, while the Meet Pro does not support Google Play service currently, so the app version of the Google Hangouts cannot run on the Meet Pro. However, you can use the web version of the Google Hangout on the Meet Pro. Here are the steps:

Step 1 Connect a mouse and keyboard to the Meet Pro.
Step 2 Go to the Home page of the device:

Step 3. On the Home page, open the Google Chrome browser and type in the URL: hangouts.google.com.

Step 4. It will direct you to the Google Play page. To change it to the web version, please go to the three-dots icon on the up right corner of the browser and go to check the box of Desktop Site:

Step 5 Sign in your Google Hangouts account after changing it to Desktop site and you can start a video call.
The page returns to Google Play page again, so please repeat the step 4 and change the setting to “Desktop site” again.

Step 6 After you start a video call, you may see the notification as below:
