Possible Scams run on Hangouts
acsy57 on 5/24/2018
I got scammed with a fake job interview on hangouts. Not sure of the damage yet but couldn’t find an easy way to report it to them. Hope this app is secure but I’ve heard otherwise on forums
Convenient App for business and personal
Ajawon on 5/24/2018
I use G Suite for work and have a personal Google account separately. Being able to quickly and easily switch between the accounts I use to keep informed on various projects and personal endeavors I super convenient and actually an aspect of this app I have requested for in other multi-account services I use.
Awesomeness for work!
UTpharmer on 5/24/2018
We use Google Suite in my businesses, and hangouts really makes life a lot easier. There’s a missing feature that I find kind of annoying though. I’m always logged in to my 4 different gmail accounts, but the account selector tiles in settings often display in a frustrating way. In my opinion, it should show you the current account that you have selected first, and then show you any account that have unread messages as the next account. Why? I find that I’m constant having to select an account just to make the tiles shift so I can select the account that has unread messages. This is only a problem for people with 4 or more accounts.
Kiki seeff on 5/24/2018
I use hangouts every day to message my friends. It delivers quickly and is so easy to use
Armaan singhania on 5/24/2018
Very nice app! For business or personal use, i never miss any chat send from my clients!
Great tool to use!!!!
Carmen's friend on 5/24/2018
Excellent and fun to use..
They need to improve.
RJ Diaz on 5/23/2018
They made it difficult to go from google plus to hangouts. It’s a joke.
I love hangouts
Meliodas Dragneel😍 on 5/23/2018
This is amazing. I love to text my friends👍👍👍👍👍😀😀😀.
Great App. Does what it does well.
mindhead1 on 5/23/2018
Hangouts is a great app. I only wish google stayed committed to it and worked on better SMS integration. I love it’s cross platform capabilities. If it could handle SMS and MMS it would be my only chat/message app. I primarily use it for work now. Great for communicating with co workers during the day individually and group chats. I also use it to make calls from my computer. I attached my Grand Central phone number with hangouts and it serves as an alternate/business phone line for me. It’ll ring on my computer, tablet or phone. Hangout gets the job done.
Face time
tulipsarewierd107 on 5/23/2018
The face time is really glitchy but other wise I love ❤️ this app it is so easy to use and fun to contact your friends with also you can’t delete chats which is a little weird I highly recommend this app also please get less glitchy face times me and my friends get really annoyed 😠 because she can’t seem to put here face on her screen so we can’t see her and it freezes up so we can’t See what she’s doing. But I really do highly highly highly recommend this amazing 😉 app. 😜🤪😝😛😋😍😘
Why only 4 stars
pleelux on 5/23/2018
Great and all should also be a WiFi free app because my best friend all ways looses connection 😿😿☹️☹️so please make it useable without WiFi
It just a little more work
NejiFan101 on 5/23/2018
I love this app however it does a little more work and the notifications goes off in the wrong time. Also, the app does freeze up during call and video chats.
mushiach#2 on 5/23/2018
Not a good style
Great tool for groups
tomjgill on 5/23/2018
We use hangouts all the time for communication in our group of friends. It is a great way to send group texts. If I have a longer message to send, I just use a computer keyboard.
Juicy Jerry on 5/23/2018
This could be a very bad choice , if someone from a chat room has asked you to go here do not you will get scammed
“Google Hangouts”
Osuagwu on 5/23/2018
Google Hangouts is a very good VOIP app. You can also use it to call mobiles and landlines. It is very clear and is seamlessly Integrated into the vast Google networks of apps and programmes. Hangouts is dependable and clear.
They ignored the iOS looky-feely
AppFzx on 5/23/2018
Swiping contacts should give options to delete them. As it is, there is absolutely no way to delete a contact using the phone. You can’t even do it in a browser because google blocks you and tries to force you back to the app. Basically worst design ever. I’d post it in /r/assholedesign on Reddit but there’s nothing to screenshot because it’s an overtly stupid ignoring of the iOS app look-feel standards. Compound that with the BARRAGE OF SPAM YOU’LL START GETTING WHEN YOU INSTALL THE APP and there’s no way to disallow people who “have your number or your email” from sending invites and it makes this app unusable. Basically one of the worst designed apps I’ve ever seen.
Slow, keeps switching back to Apple keyboard
Droidset on 5/22/2018
Over the past few months it has been force switching keyboards, and loading chats and transmitting responses very slowly. BORDERLINE UNUSABLE.
Great app to stay in touch
sweetleilani21 on 5/22/2018
I love this app because it allows me to share things with my 11 year old son without him owning a cell phone. We recently moved and he can also text, call and video chat with his friends from out of town. I really appreciate this app
micaela07 on 5/22/2018
I love so much
GoldDragon129 on 5/22/2018
Hangouts has done very good for me and I'm able to chat with friends who I can not iMessage. It's not as fast as iMessage and sometimes can be a bit glitchy but overall it's good.
Chica fresa
charrita de oro on 5/22/2018
Muy buena aplicación.
bstoneaz on 5/22/2018
Great for group chats
Love it
hpfangal13 on 5/22/2018
It is a great way for people who don’t have phones (younger kids) to communicate with each other. And I use it all the time the thing is none of my friends are on at the same time so I wait 1-2hours for a response needs some improvement on notifications but other than that this app is great
Love the app
1235782 on 5/22/2018
This app is great for texting on your computer. I have an iPhone but am a PC used both at home and work so this makes it very convenient to text others without having to pick up my phone. I wish there was an easier way to search chats but just know that you can search them through gmail.
Works well
rana1137 on 5/22/2018
I’ve been using Hangouts for years now. It’s not my sole messaging app as life seems not to allow it. That being said, I do use it often and I’ve never had a problem. I’ve used the calling feature as well with no issues. As far as I’m concerned this is an all around great messaging app.
Good job
BeaglesWillRuleTheWorld on 5/22/2018
This is an awesome app and I think that many others will agree full heartily. Good job Google!
One problem...
Katnis TWB says on 5/22/2018
There is one problem: There are no problems! This is a grate app for all ages. If you don't have messages you need hangouts. I use it all the time. GET THIS APP!!!!! I don't have bad grammar I have bad something else because my grammar is on purpose.
Miner12082005 on 5/22/2018
I mean like it’s kinda kool and stuff you can talk with friends and stuff...and... yeah I guess
WCG88 on 5/22/2018
My work uses Gmail so hangout is a common application at the office. I love the app because I can stay connected while I am not at a computer/desk. The option to switch between personal and work accounts is simple and easy to use. This is a great app for any novice or expert mobile application users.
Just started notification failing
Tolisten2000 on 5/22/2018
Notifications just started coming to my phone HOURS after the messages were actually sent on computer chats. I have powered off and on my phone with no change. Help!
Absolutely bugged
Jmac dude on 5/22/2018
Sometimes I get banner notifications for messages that I had received and already checked hours ago. Thanks google.
Unfriendly to iOS conventions
elvo86 on 5/22/2018
Doesn’t support split view multitasking on iPad. Notifications just keep buzzing for chatty conversations, no notification action to mute (have to enter app, which marks as read), no back-off mechanism to slow the buzzing. No keyboard hotkey support. Boring, non-standard UI. Clunky to start group messages.
Says I have an incoming call when there isn’t one
Lexiecodes on 5/22/2018
I had to uninstall this. Everyone at my office uses hangouts and anyone with an iPhone just deleted this app. It’s sending us all old messages from today randomly as push notifications. (Like. A LOT) It got even worse when it started sending push notifications/ringing for incoming calls that had already taken place. When you click on them they call everyone back. It’s so annoying and terrible right now. I may reinstall in a few days and hopefully it’s fixed but as of right now I’m going to have to use something else.
Needs tons of improvement
Ice bear 21 on 5/22/2018
I had always knows that Apple has something against google and google has a problem with Apple but, this needs to be fixed, mainly because hangouts behaves more like garbage on Apple than anywhere else, it needs to work on notifications, calling both video and audio because it doesn’t matter since they both crash and are broken if someone calls you, It would be so good if all those bugs and issues were fixed because it is ruining the app
App not notifying.
Brmullic on 5/22/2018
App has been failing to send notifications. No badge icons, no message previews, nothing. I’ve checked all the settings 3x but it just won’t work correctly.
Notifactions are bugged
Colton pokemon on 5/22/2018
Please fix them
Fr3nchkisses on 5/22/2018
Don’t get notifications for messages unless I’m in the app 😒
Bug problem.
Bren0015 on 5/22/2018
Notifications won’t work.

Cut the Crap Messenger
Bays64 on 5/22/2018
Hangout- messaging system allows you to IM anyone with a Gmail email address. You can call them, text, send gifs, or share your location. I dig it, and you should too
anniesanders06 on 5/22/2018
I have an iPod Touch and those of u who do also, u will know that you can only text Apple iPhones. All of my friends have Samsung and all that stuff, so we all got hangouts to text each other! It really works. I suggest not making a huge group with all your friends because some people got annoyed (me too) that other friends were texting so much throughout the day. Other than that hangouts is an amazing app for laptops or iPod touches! And I use it so much. Thank you hangouts!! 🦄🦄🦄🙏🙏🙏
Crazy about this app💕
Queen B !! on 5/22/2018
This app helps me keep in contact with loves ones I who are in the military Also family out of the country!! This app is awesome and hasn’t failed can delay at times but it’s still a great app 👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽👏🏾👏🏾!
El'Nino£ on 5/22/2018
I love the hangout, google is best. It’s reliable and good for chats and voice calls and video call
I want to stop this dum atoo cerebrum on this app other wise this ep is Guds
WaluigiGuy333 on 5/21/2018
Off ghhv
Love it but...
BlobDog57 on 5/21/2018
This app is great for all my group chats, but I would really like if the WiFi of my House wouldn’t blow up during my video chats. However, this app is great and would suggest you get it for all things group chat.
