I LOVE GOOGLE & THEIR PRODUCTS
Google does a lot to make life better for many people. I love that I have unlimited photo cloud storage in google photos, I love google search, I make good use of google voice, & I find hangouts very useful also. Hangouts hopefully will work out some of the recent glitches where it doesn't properly push the ringtone to my hibernating iPhone, but that's probably just temporary due to the iOS 10 update. Hopefully someone will read this & fix it. I don't get many calls that way, but it used to work perfectly. Over years though hangouts has been mostly flawless. Thanks google for what you do! Those are just the tip of the iceberg for the google offerings I enjoy.
Great chat app, one on one or with groups
My college friends and I decided to use Google Hangouts when one of us deactivated their Facebook account, but still wanted to remain in touch with us. Since then, we haven't looked back. This is a well-made and intuitive app I would recommend for not only steadfast Google Plus users but also anyone looking for the best way to chat with one friend or a lot of friends.
Update: I now use two accounts to talk to multiple groups of friends, and the app allows me to swap accounts pretty seamlessly.
Please add video messages capability!
This app has definitely come a long way. I'm glad picture messages are finally allowed but now the app just needs to be stepped up just a bit more and allow to send/receive video messages. On more than one occasion, I find out later someone has sent me a video but I didn't even get an error message acknowledging any message was attempted so I wasn't aware. Please add video soon. Or even just email us the video!
Sometimes, I get repeated messages twice in a row. And other times messages are lagged and don't appear until I manually exit and enter the app again. I have to do that to refresh the app it seems.
