    I don't think it comes pre-installed. And yes, it is safe to delete. You can find it in your app drawer if it is not on your homescreen.

    I thought Google Talk (which is what Hangouts replaced) was pre-installed? Once you uninstall the updates to Hangouts you should be able to disable Google Talk.

    Settings -> More (if using the Tab view) -> Application manager -> swipe to the ALL tab -> scroll down until you find Hangouts or Google Talk.

    No - it would be listed as Hangouts or Google Talk.
    Guess you don't have it installed (shrug).
    Are you running the stock 4.3 firmware?
