I recently got this Galaxy S4 Mini GT-I9195. Its shipped with Android 4.2.2
The device is not rooted yet,
When i go to application manager -> Hangouts
i do not see uninstall button. All what I see is, 'Force Stop' & 'Turn Off'

I want to uninstall this annoying app and want to use Google Talk. I do have Gtalk APK with me.
When I try to install it, it says App cant be installed,

Could anyone please guide me through. Many thanks in Advance.

you can download and check .apk from here.

google still supports Google talk.
I have same on my Galaxy Note which has got it pre-installed.
I am just not opting for the update play store prompts me to do and this is how I can enjoy gtalk
Please help

Firat you can't uninstall hangouts because it's a system app, and turning off dond't let you install talk.
Your apk works fine on my phone.

The only way to uninstall a system app is to have root access
