Users who are online and active will have a green dot next to their icon. Users who are offline also won’t have any indicator from the friend list. However, if you open a chat window, a message will appear that tells you they are not on Hangouts right now.
Activity means logged in to Hangouts, or did something, but not necessarily conversing with someone. The active just now “status” in Hangouts should not be used as proof of availability. To become completely inactive, sign out of Hangouts on all devices.
You can see the persons last seen just below their name in Hangouts. This may not be possible if the person has turned off their last seen.
You can tell that someone is available on classic Hangouts by the green dot on their profile picture. These people will be notified about new messages immediately. You can also see when someone was last seen on classic Hangouts if they have the setting turned on.
