Well, it's official:

  https://gsuiteupdates.googleblog.com/2017/03/updates-in-g-suite-to-streamline-hangouts-and-gmail.html

Per the blog post version:

} Third-party XMPP clients will continue to work with Hangouts for
} 1-on-1 chats. XMPP federation with third-party services providers will
} no longer be supported starting June 26.

That's at least better than _pretending_ it works.
