Uptime Robot is already integrated with the major team communication apps and here is another addition: Google Hangouts Chat.
If you already use Hangouts Chat (which is part of the G Suite of Google), the integration can be setup with just these few steps:
- Inside Hangouts Chat, create a new web-hook URL in Room menu>Configure webhooks>Add new.
- Inside Uptime Robot, create a new alert contact in My Settings>Alert Contacts>Add new>Google Hangouts Chat using the previously created Hangouts Chat web-hook URL.
- Attach this new alert contact to the monitors of your choice from add/edit monitor dialogs.
- That is it.

I can’t make it work. How about documenting your integration?
please contact us on email@example.com if there is anything we can help you with at the moment.
Little disappointed that this requires G Suite, when others can add it without requiring the paid version of G Suite. Please integrate the free version for people to use.
If I’m not wrong, the free version doesn’t have the web-hook support which makes it impossible for us to integrate. Otherwise, we’d love to.
I can’t seem to find the option for this. Where is “room menu” located in chat.google.com? We are using a paid version of G Suite.
Nevermind! I found this. You have to click on the room name in the center top of the screen to find the options.
Completed the integration but not working, What to do to troubleshoot ?
contact our support at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll be happy to take a look at it. You need to make sure you’re using the correct URL.
