I appreciate that Google gives what it promises without limitations or barriers that others try to hide so you'll download apps. I had been using "textplus/nextplus" for a while, but there were so many glitches with it, I started to look elsewhere. My brother showed me how Google hangouts worked, and I'm so thankful he did. Google hangouts doesn't have the glitches, ads, limited text amount, and phone call barriers the other app I used had. I have used the phone on google hangouts before to call people and it worked great (thanks for combining google voice with it!). It is able to text actual phone numbers (when in a wifi area) not just other users of Google hangouts. ALSO, while the google hangouts app can be on your phone, ipad, iPad mini, tablet, or other handheld devices, it can be also connected to on your computer, so that all of your conversations texted on your phone are readily available there as well. I have enjoyed using it very much. Keep up the good work Google!
I love hang outs!
I think it works so well. You can text people who also have this app. You can video chat with your hangouts. You can call anybody with a phone number or by hangouts. Although they see you as an unknown number, so you might have to figure that out. The currant update makkes this app look very high tech. However, it is a little annoying when you have sound on in your settings, yet it doesn't notify you when you get a message. Anyhow, Hangouts is very good way to contact friends and family that don't have and Apple device, because if you have an ipad or ipod, you cannot contact people with otherwise. So, you can get the free app of Hangouts. Hangouts usualy comes with Samsung and Google devices. One of the things that is a downer is the fact you have to get and account with an e-mail or phone number. Kids alot of the time don't always have an e-mail or phone. Parents don't always want to use their profile.
I think that this app is a 4 star app. It is a very well working text/call app.
Google will rule the world?
Hangouts is one of Googles "flagship" products. I find it to be one of the most versatile pieces of software created. It's now become my "one-stop" location to I use to communicate to all on planet Earth. I use it in place of Skype to make calls, works much better. Better than FB's Messenger for sure, no comparison. SMS's, the one-stop shop texting all my contacts instead of my wireless carriers texting platforms, so much easier. Hangouts does it all plus more! Snap a picture & text, Hangouts. Attach a file & text, Hangouts. Same with calls. It's become my best way to talk to the world, all this plus voicemail notification! Video conferencing, Hangouts. I hope Google will always keep it free & continue to support further development as needed. It's truly the modern day equivalent of a phone booth, all in your hand, plus more!
