So close, yet so far.

This app is almost there. It desperately needs to be able to manage multiple accounts, and it certainly should (go back to) a side-by-side format (I don’t know what happened; I’m 90% sure we had that before and then this last update broke it). It would be nice if individual chats could have “conversations” also to keep things nice and organized. You also MUST be able to delete/archive rooms. Oh, and we need some sort of thumbs-up or “like” feature! There have been a lot of “updates” pushed out lately, but not many changes. It would be nice to see some new features/upgrades soon!

This app is in alpha phase

I dont usually rate apps . But this app is way far from being ready . I'm a Google fan boy and I try to adopt the lastest of what Google has to offer in our organization. But this product was one of the worst apps I've used . The app has potential but is missing many important features and it's very frustrating trying to use the app. Google Hangouts is an old app and yet it feels more capable and functional than the chat app. I feel Google need to put more resources into this app . As for now we stuck with an old app (Google Hangouts) and an basic chat app that just frustrating. I wish Google bought WhatsApp a while back 😂. Common Google before you focus on AI try to get focus on getting the basics right .

You had one job.

Google. You had one job. Look at what your biggest competitor in this sector (Slack) is doing. And then do that thing better.

I have no idea how this service manages to fall so short. My company recently switched to using it instead of Slack as a cost saving measure and everybody is just so miserable. Somewhere in Los Angeles, the morale of a hundred or so workers is incredibly low due to a poorly thought out user experience. Probably.

We found the “conversation” experience is confusing and nobody uses it properly, instead opting for whatever is the most recent conversation bubble. Slack supports conversations too, but does so a lot more elegantly.

The straw that broke the camel’s back for me: my colleague sent a .wav file to preview, as we often do. “UNSUPPORTED FILE TYPE” flashed on screen. WHY?!

Hangouts Chat team, please look closely at what the other options are and ask yourselves how you can meet or exceed those offerings. I look forward to a better product soon.
