    Welcome to Android Central! It's Google's own instant messaging/chat platform, although they've been trying to transition people away from this to their newer app, Allo. If you never chat with anyone else using Hangouts instant messaging, then you don't need to use it (and you could Disable it in the Settings>Apps menu, if you want).
