I Love Hangouts - best VoIP option available!
I travel a lot so I need a solution that gives me the ability to receive US calls while I'm abroad. With that said, I've tried a lot of services and Google Hangouts is the best overall. Easy ability to text, phone calls are received clear and good quality and I don't get too many interruptions with limited cell service.
Great voice to text and email alert features!
A few areas for improvement:
- sometimes videos don't come through until a day after they are sent
- I can't receive phone calls--usually security checks--from certain companies that require cell numbers. C'mon, Hangouts is google - you haven't figured out how to get around this yet?
- Hangouts doesn't seem to connect extremely well with my contact list and sometimes I can't see who the call is coming from - even though it is someone that has been in my contacts for a long time.
- can't delete contacts in my "frequent" list. Even though some of these people have not been contacted in years, I should still have the ability to delete these, just in case they were an ex-girlfriend or someone like that...
Review for Hangouts
Google Hangouts is a very intuitive app, it handles all of my local and long distances phone calls as well as live video chats on my iPad Air. It works seamlessly with my google phone number, which means that it's available for me use whether I'm online or using wireless data.
And it does all of the things that I mentioned, while at the same time, staying out of my way . It's extremely easy to use and navigate.
I highly recommend the app to everyone, especially those want a way to stay in touch with family and friends!
Love Love LOVE
I've been using Hangouts on my computer as soon as I created my gmail, and when as soon as I got my phone, I downloaded it onto here. Really wonderful app to chat with friends and send pictures and videos. You can also save those pictures and videos onto your own device. You are also able to italicize, bold and scratch out text. The only thing I would ask to be improved is the video calling feature. Calling is completely fine, you're able to hear. However, when it comes to VIDEO feature, it's very slow. Still an amazing app!
