    A Google search brought me here.  Before using the above DNS lists, I decided to use Fiddler.  It appears the APIs used have been updated.  To block Hangouts as of February 2021, block these domains:

    client-channel.google.com

    clients6.google.com

    I don't know if this is versioning, or if other clients*.google.com are used.  I did ensure that you can send and receive emails from Gmail using the web browser after this.

    Sad to hear that you have Search Engines blocked, so you cannot find it out yourself.  I can help you out:

    As of https://support.sonicwall.com/kb/sw14228 you add the following domains to your "always block" list:

    In Chrome disable also the Data Saver mode.

    Please note that blocking www.googleapis.com may block other Google services too.
