Hang outs without Google voice, is crap!!
What happened to google voice, and being able to get voicemail messages?!? Also, Hang-outs is now dropping any call that I make that last more than about 20 minutes! What is the problem here?!? Google voice worked so well, when it worked alongside Talkatone, and once you killed that, everything has gone to hell ever since!! So is it that it's impossible to get voicemail through hangouts?!? You all really effed things up, here! I want to know how I collect all of my personal data that you all have gotten for me for using hangouts, so that I can delete this stupid app now, and not feel like I have big brother breathing down my throat so that I can use a phone app!! After I get through here - giving you people, at Google, direct feedback - I'm going to leave really horrible reviews on this apps download site!!! Please get back to me and tell me how I can collect my personal information from you and delete it from your databanks!!! Google plus is horrible as either a social website networking website, and/or a means to communicate with people – as far as I'm concerned, Google has become almost worse then useless, and quite a bit scary, as well!
I use this app for many every day uses, and haven't had any errors or crashes yet! I love its features like status updating, drawing, using the desktop app on chrome, and other neat stuff. I definitely like hangouts more than the I message app! I love the way google combined Google plus, video calls, text, chat, voice calls and stuff in the same app, it's really nice to have all those things in one app. I enjoy that Google has used the material design in this app, but I will say that having the white background is kind of boring and extremely bright at times. It would be nice to add a custom background color or photo. I think it would also be nice to add the computer version features onto the mobile app, I like the hidden features on the computer like /bikeshed /shydino /pitchforks and etc.
I will look forward to see what Google will continue to do with this amazing app! I recommend it to any anyone.
Great Free Backup Phone/Texter !!!
A great backup call/text phone ! I use it when my T-Mobile connection has poor service. Free US to US calling makes it very practical for me. Also, you can get your own GV number on the web free so friends can call and text you !! There are also affordable international rates. Plus Google's Visual / Transcribed voicemail feels VERY modern / convenient. I only wish my carrier: Net 10 would let me switch to it.
It has a few issues: The call quality is generally poorer than Skype, they should allow speakerphone as default, and they removed the ability to do traditional VOIP to work with your phones default calling apps. And it should have better integration with iOS or Google contacts allowing groups and editing contacts. Also, there is Google's annoying tendency to make a reliable free product and then cancel it from under you. Remember 1-800-GOOG-411 ?
