It’s easy to communicate I give this app 4 stars
its the hard knock life on 7/19/2018
Really helpful
Doesn’t support Slide Over or Split View
heedfulpenguin on 7/18/2018
This makes the app useless when you’re trying to multitask and talk to a friend or colleague.
Dogecookielover on 7/18/2018
Would be better if it would not lag as much. It would also be better if we could share screen on mobile devices. Other than that its great!
Works good
Lynnebabe68 on 7/18/2018
I like it so far no hang ups.
Lricehall on 7/17/2018
Hangouts is a great social media app!
Draining battery in iPhoneX
San1986 on 7/16/2018
For few mins call, I see it consumes 10 to 15%
It’s good
bluepagan80 on 7/16/2018
It’s good to use for chat but there are the reasons I put 3 stars. It is a good hangout and chat with different people. But video doesn’t work at all but photo is good but sometimes it doesn’t come out right... Do this hangout need update to make it improve better? If it needs to then please update this... thanks
Need to get it!
Sarah "T" on 7/16/2018
It’s such a cool app to use with your family or friends! It’s easy and free! (Too good to be true) and there’s and variety of fun stickers you can use! And you don’t just text, you can video chat!!!! (Seriously too good to be true)! I use the app with my dad and it’s really simple and fun to use!
Great communication for kids without a phone
Foot pegs on 7/15/2018
I wish the notifications could be turned louder and or stay on screen!!!
Nice And easy to use(but needs a bit of work)
Linxkingmeow on 7/15/2018
I think the app in general is GREAT! But some of the functions such as talking can add some echos! I have tried changing my microphone. But the most annoying is that you can not chat on screen like you can on computer. Shame!
Not working
binkgirl on 7/14/2018
It's not letting me send messages over wifi or cellular data. It's important that this application works!
Very slow
may pagaduan on 7/14/2018
When sending video it freeze and unable to send any messages at all that i have to un install it again
No incoming calls, no sound
wjhsong on 7/13/2018
Hangout doesn’t ring for all incoming calls but randomly catches just a few. Missed so many calls. Once picked up, I can hear sound only when the speaker mode is on, which means everyone around me will hear my conversations. Sent numerous feedbacks, but no responses, no updates. Ugly!
Love this app❤️❤️❤️
mbesser1 on 7/13/2018
I think this app is a great way to contact your friends ! Especially when you friend has a different phone than you and can’t have messages ! 5 Star Rating!
Needs improvement
Leonardo Gaona on 7/13/2018
The quality in the call is really low it’s hard to notice a persons face I really hope you fix this.
BorisBKGgg777 on 7/13/2018
Wonderful app always use it for work communication
It’s good yet not the best
CubanLizard16 on 7/13/2018
Coming from a person who has multiple texting/ face chatting apps. Google Hangouts is personally not the best if you want a real app go to Houseparty.
Old Conversations (Top Button)
bluedog52 on 7/13/2018
I love Hangouts a lot but I have one problem: I can’t scroll to the top of one conversation, meaning if you have an iPhone in iMessage, you can click on that persons contact and scroll to the top to the first conversation you’ve ever had. With Hangouts that’s not possible because after a few messages it stops and you can’t go higher. I’m worried that some attachments and conversations have been lost. So may you either add a “Top” button that brings you to the top or allow us to scroll to the top. [This is an issue for the mobile app and computer] Thanks, your app is great. :)
Wafflekittys Animatiøns on 7/12/2018
So when I’m in a call the bar is red and when I look at a video then I get out of the call which literally bothers me so much And Can you make iPad screen share?
The Majestic Sailboat on 7/12/2018
Like it! Google Hangouts finally gave me the chance to FaceTime with a group, and it’s really great! One thing I dislike is that you have to wait for the person to accept your invitation to chat before you can converse.
maxiad2003 on 7/12/2018
This is a great app, I use it a lot for talking to people, the only problem is the video quality is very bad, and the calling quality is ok, nothing too much to complain about
Great App
Cut the line lover on 7/12/2018
Very useful and helpful to communicate to others.
So many things I don’t like about Hangouts
LeiNolen on 7/12/2018
1. I don’t have a google account. 2. I am too young for a google account . 3. I need to be able to call someone that can only talk by Hangouts!!! So for the geniuses who made this I ask for a different way to log in!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Bad voice quality and missing basic functions
MichaelWjr on 7/12/2018
I made the switch over to hangouts to use with google voice, but the call quality is terrible. I can still make the same call using the google voice app and it sounds great. I’ve tested this from the same network at the same time and each time the hangouts voice quality is terrible. Adding multiple contacts to a sms is awkward. Why can’t you just keep adding receipts instead of having to select new group? Where’s the global search to find something in a text or voicemail? Why can’t I call someone from a text message? When you look at people on a message I should be able to call or individually message them. Why can’t I message reply a missed call? When I select a missed call it calls them back. I should be able to see there contact info and pick an email, text or call back number.
ktra899 on 7/12/2018
Everyone be careful with hangout They are scams if hangout with someone else you need to
How amazingly my hangouts is
bighead lover443 on 7/12/2018
I think this app is super useful to talk to friends or cousins who have moved away. The emojis are all super cute too!! I really recommend this app for texting friends of families, you even could text co-workers for your job.
Subbir on 7/12/2018
Previous version was better than this one. Most of the time it does not show the last message at the bottom. It scrolls up in the middle section of the chat history when you open the app. Besides, for iPhone X every first time it resign the keyboard while you are typing and looses all the text that you just have typed.
49ersljc on 7/11/2018
I don’t really like it because I can’t find anything where I can block people or delete any messages. Other than that it is okay . I don’t use it a lot but yeah
Hands down worst
yerbad on 7/11/2018
I’d recommend Telegram (favorite for so many reasons) or Signal for privacy as both are end to end encrypted. Discord or slack for team management but discord has the problem where you can’t send media. Here are the problems with hangouts: Takes forever to load in if you have any substantial amount of open conversations. This is because it has to index and load your messages that they’ve saved on their server. Takes FOREVER to send any videos, also can’t send a message within that chat until it finishes sending. Crashes often upon loading. No security. Difficult to search for other users. Slow. Phone calls and video calls are slow and choppy.
Pretty good, but updating needs work.
LibrarianX on 7/11/2018
Generally, hangouts is pretty good. I definitely like it better than messenger, partly because it’s less invasive. There is some tweaksThat it needs, especially when it comes to updating the conversation thread. I use it from my phone, from an iPad, and from a laptop, And sometimes I switch between those during a conversation. Often what I say or what the other person says gets lost, and I don’t see it until I go and look at that hang out the next day. This can lead to some serious misunderstandings.
Dated but functions
BL949 on 7/11/2018
Google needs to get with the times and update the application with more features as well make the app more intuitive. Love it for communication among friends but not being able to see all media attachments in one click is a bother as well as the implementation of how photos are viewed is ancient.
Won’t let me sign up
unibri16 on 7/11/2018
I hate that this app won’t let me in. I’ve tried several times but nothing works
Consistent Winner
Craftingnew on 7/11/2018
Reliable for texting and making calls. It saved my day when my regular smart phone app and phone service was on the cliche. Nice that I could use it on my PC also.
Fix the app already
qa? on 7/10/2018
Terrible. They broke the ability to search google+ accts months ago and its still not fixed. Useless
Thecookie28 on 7/10/2018
Absolutely amazing! Used it to connect with an old friend. Love everything google makes! 100% recommend it.
Really good
skelebros59 on 7/10/2018
Hangouts is great. It is good for video calling and texting.
Love it
Dophanator on 7/10/2018
Hangouts has always been my #1 choice for contacting friends! Video quality is great but doesn’t always work right. The audio can be iffy at times but overall great app!
magic girl!! on 7/10/2018
It’s awesome I think I can speak for all of my friends
Low mic volume
rologzz on 7/9/2018
Mic volume is significantly slow on my end.
Voice was better.
MustBTrouble on 7/9/2018
I used to use google voice for many of these functions . Then when it was discontinued there was a big effort to switch hangouts. But i actually preferred how my contacts were synced from phone and easy adding to list, phone call , and although not fancy the text feature. Now im not sure if i should use this, duo, or go back to voice bc it was simpler. Like how do i copy a number thats called my and add into contacts? Its like impossible on iphone
Ehejebneje on 7/9/2018
Needs to stop crashing on me . I have to close it all the time and start over in sick of it , fix it please
Love it
asheanna_is_queen on 7/9/2018
I love hangout it’s easy to use
I hate deleting....
Meeeeeetoooooo12 on 7/9/2018
I hate loading, deleting and reloading this app. If I don’t delete and reload, it could take hours if ever for this app to open when I get a message. Please fix this?????
Pretty Good so far.
StoddGee on 7/8/2018
I’m enjoying learning the app. I have many friends that only use this app to communicate. It’s very nice to have a place to finally hangout.
No Videos Have Sound on iPhone
swingin_splanky on 7/8/2018
The advice in the help forum was to delete the app and reinstall it. But, “Deleting this app will also delete its data.” Does that mean the user will have to have all the videos sent to them again? If that’s the case, I’m just going to ask the senders to use WhatsApp instead. The requests for help on this problem in the forum I first found are a year old. Then I found more going back to 2013. Yet, I’m having the same problem now, videos with no sound. Deleting the app and all data is extreme, and I see no indication in the help forum that it actually fixes the problem. Why hasn’t this been solved with a bug fix by now? I think the lack of user support for this problem for years rates a one star review.
My experience
