Scammers use this - fake jobs
I had someone contact me to say do interview through this website. Person said found me on state unemployment site. Created gmail accounts with real names of company they were pretending to be... pretend job with pretend training 2 hours per day for 5 days starting on weekend. Then send fake check for you to have you attempt to deposit in your bank account. Pay attention: things that should be on your check: bank name it is drawn on, should have routing number then their account number, then check number. Normally companies have two signatures and have a ‘stub’ to state what this is payment for. Scammer became insistent that I cash immediately. Pay attention is check drawn on company you are working for? Did you get company email? Some companies post their real website that they would not interview on google hangout.
The app worked well just. Person had ulterior motive to get your personal information. Just Beware.
My friends wanted to chat with me, so they recommended hangouts to do it. I was like Ok, let’s try it. It’s all like the regular texting app, but you can also call using the same app, which is pretty convenient. The regular app does not include calling, and you need two apps if you want to call. You can also switch from voicemail to FaceTime, instead of having to call again if you want to FaceTime. Group chat let’s you talk as a group in a voicemail or FaceTime, and all of the people can decide if they want either voice only or camera. If you don’t have the new update for group chat on your device, that’s ok! You don’t need to update to group chat on Hangouts. Overall, this app totally deserves five stars. As an addition, I like the little cyclops guy that you see if there is nothing there. Hey, it’s cute and makes the app pop out more. The logo is a dialog bubble with quotations (“) in it, which is a pretty clever idea because the app is about chat. If you are reading this and you don’t have Hangouts, get it right now. You better. And if you already do, then give yourself a pat on the back. I’m so glad I found this app, and I hope you decide to use the app too. Applause to the creator of this app. 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 You deserve it.
Love it, but now I’m really sad
I use hangouts all the time to talk to all of my friends. I love the app, and it is pretty much my life. Then today, October 20th 2019, I was refreshing hangouts and signing out of my account meaning to sign back in and it would be refreshed. I do this a lot, because then after I sign back in I can see my friends’ changed profile pictures, etc. I had also just installed the IOS 12.4.2 update on my device. A screen I had never seen before popped up that said, “Welcome! Hangouts will save all of your recorded conversation history so you can access it anywhere you need to.” Then at the bottom of the screen there was a big blue button that read, “OK, got it!” I pressed that button. At first it didn’t work and I assumed it was a tiny glitch and wasn’t a big deal. I waited. I tried again. I did it again. It still wasn’t working. I restarted my device, deleted and re-installed hangouts, cleared all my windows and checked my internet connection, which was full bars. I’m still trying to figure out why it won’t work. At the time, I cannot contact any of the people I would want to contact. Please help me! I love this app and need it to work!
