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.

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

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
