Not sure which Google chat platform you are using? 

Back in 2015, Google announced it would be discontinuing Google Talk (also known as “Gchat”) and instructed users to migrate to the Google Hangouts app on the Chrome browser. As part of this transition Google stopped supporting bots on Gtalk. As of 2019 Google is once again transitioning users from classic Hangouts to their latest chat platform - Hangouts Chat. We recommend using Zoom.ai with Hangouts Chat. As required by Google - you will need a Gsuite account to use Hangouts Chat.
