Answer

It's not possible to do without API. and API for that doesn't exist. I you want to create chat application you can use GCM.

You can write extentions for hangouts : Hangouts API. But android application integration is not possible at this moment. (And i think it never will be, because they have their protocol)

You have only one way to do this. Download whireshark or fidler and see what http requests are sent/received during the chat on your android or web hangouts chat. :)

But still i think they have some authentication and hashing that will make this impossible.
