How do I hide the Hangouts panel on Google Plus?

On the Google+ website (, the Hangouts panel appears on the right hand side. I already have the Chrome Hangouts extension so I don't need it there at all.

I know this doesn't answer the original question, but I was redirected here while trying to remove the same "Hangouts" sidebar within Gmail.

In case this helps anyone else, to hide the Hangouts sidebar in Gmail, click "Settings" > "Chat" > "Chat Off"
